We rarely endorse a specific cultural event, but we’d like to make an important exception. On Friday, February 18th, there will be a concert at Symphony Hall in Boston that has special significance for The G&LR. The concert will be performed by the Boston Modern Orchestra Project and will be dedicated to Larry Phillips, for whom G&LR editor, Richard Schneider, wrote an obituary which was published in The G&LR‘s March-April 2019 issue.
Larry was instrumental in the initial founding of this magazine, and he was also a major force behind the founding of BMOP. This concert will celebrate the 25th anniversary of BMOP, which was founded in 1997.
The concert is an in-person event, and it’s free of charge. While you may have concerns about attending an in-person event, rest assured that every precaution will be taken to minimize the risk to attendees.
Please note that this event is a fundraiser for BMOP. There will be a reception for donors prior to the 8 pm concert. Details below.
