A Message from the President: Live Music and More at The Arsenal Arts Center

By Doug Ruffin
      Boston Music Coalition

You may have noticed the Boston Music Coalition paid some attention to a big band event last week at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown. I attended that event on Saturday night and was surprised by the show and the Arsenal Arts Center it self. This was, you see, my first time attending the arts center. Then again, why should I be surprise to find quality performances at a terrific theatre and reception area at the Arsenal Arts Center? 

Just outside of Boston, in Watertown Massachusetts. is the Arsenal Arts Center big enough to support several areas of the arts and personal enough for anyone to attend a show or, participate in a program for kids and adults alike.

On Saturday, I attended the Arsenal Arts Centers’ fund raising event, “Big Band meets Hollywood”. Singer, Donna McElroy and Sax player, Larry Monroe along with an 18 piece big band had the audience cheering, clapping and “tappin’ foot” as the music and history swung throughout the night! But it was even more than that. A reception was held prior to the event. It gave people a chance to grab a glimpse of the Arsenal Arts Center and to meet members of the board. When Joyce Kulhawik made a presentation, she mentioned that she finds her self attending events at the Arsenal Arts Center every other week. I can see why and will probably do the same. The Boston Music Coalition is a strong supporter of the Arts and Live Music.
