Berklee Summer Concerts at Georges Island
Berklee College of Music, Boston Harbor Island Alliance, and the Boston Harbor National Park join forces to bring up-and-coming Berklee students and alumni to Fort Warren on Georges Island for free live performances of pop, R&B, bluegrass, roots, folk, Latin, and more. All that's needed to enjoy an afternoon of music is a ferry ticket. The concerts – Saturdays July 12 and 26, and August 9, 23, and 30 – are part of Berklee Summer in the City presented by Natixis Global Asset Management.
Berklee’s Summer Concerts at Georges Island are accessible by ferry from Boston’s Long Wharf North, next to Christopher Columbus Park (MBTA Blue Line to Aquarium Station, Green or Orange Lines to Haymarket Station). Ferry tickets can be purchased at the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. For more information, visit bostonharborislands.org.
