Stand in The Center of Boston and You will Hear All The Music

By Doug Ruffin
Boston Music Coalition

ArtsBoston held it’s 4th annual Fall Social and Arts Preview at the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre in Boston. Visitors were invited to walk around the upper lobby to meet and be greeted to music and performing arts organizations throughout greater Boston. We were treated to plenty of food and wine was served as well.

But before you think this was a stuffy hand shaking event for the arts; I’m here to tell ya’; It was fun and lively. Warm hugs, eye contact and lots of laughter replaced the traditional hand shaking most networking events seem to offer. To name a few of the leaders in music and arts in Boston would not do justice to the many that attended. But here are a few. Musica Sacra,World Music / CRASHarts, Boston Babydolls Burlesque, Celebrity Series of Boston, MOATSE / The Strand Theatre, Wellesley College, Emerson College, Boston College, The Conservatory of Music, Sheer Madness, Cantata Singers, ArtsBoston, The Lyric StageCompany of Boston, Longwood Symphony Orchestra, Boston Early Music Festival, The Blue Man Group and Shear Madness. Well over fifty companies had tables. Guests easily networked networked amongst them selves.

I met some great people who may soon be working with us at the Boston Music Coalition. And for a moment or two, I could hear a symphony of new and traditional music being played in harmony from music organizations all over greater Boston.
