2022 In Review

At Boston Music Project, we aim to bring our community together through music education. Over the past year, we have continued to innovatively explore the art of music and expand the impact of our programs. See what we’ve achieved by checking out this recap of our collective successes during our busiest year yet!

New Album Release and Showcase Performances

BMP student musicians at the McKinley Schools, part of Boston Public Schools, guided by BMP Teaching Artists produced an original digital music album entitled, "Amplify: Boston," inspired by Rob "Problak" Gibbs "Breathe Life Together" mural on The Rose Kennedy Greenway.

BMP students also joined musicians from City String United to perform alongside erhu player & violinist Shaw Pong-Liu and poet Regie Gibson at this year's Stringfest.

Students across our sites showcased their work throughout the fall semester culminating in our Winter Showcases, and BMP returns to perform at First Night Boston this Saturday at 4:00pm.

Paper Orchestra Build and Special Guests

This fall, BMP began a new partnership with the Boston Children's Museum which included Music & Movement sessions and bringing our Paper Orchestra Program to museum-goers. We invited museum guests to take part in building their very own paper instruments.

We also hosted our annual Fall Celebration at Dorchester Brewing Company (DBc), featuring live music from BMP Teaching Artists.

Students at our JQ Before-School program received visits and performances from very special guests on two separate occasions: members of the Berlin Philharmonic and Mike Block & Balla Kouyaté! Check out this behind-the-scenes video from the Berlin Phil's tour and their visit with our students!
