Shelter Music Boston presents 80-90 concerts annually in Greater Boston homeless shelters and recovery centers. We deliver live classical chamber music as a social service.
Every note invests in the capacity of classical music to create social change in environments of great need.
Each concert inspires hope and transforms the hundreds of individuals we serve monthly.
"Music is the catalyst for opportunities to look an individual in the eye and say 'I want to know what you think about this, and I am going to listen to your story.' " Julie Leven, Founder and Artistic Director
We train professional musicians, committed to providing dignity with live performances, in our unique, interactive concert model. We employ these artists to present monthly programs of classical chamber music for those in need throughout Greater Boston.
