Landmarks Dance Night brings music to move by from diverse cultures to the Hatch Shell. Love, magicians, and ghosts haunt the flamenco ballet, El amor brujo, inspired by tales of the Romani people. The rhythms of Haiti and Vodou culture, and the drumming of the West African diaspora inspire Bostonians of disparate backgrounds to dance, from amateurs to established professionals. The brilliant young professionals of Boston Ballet II close the 2019 season performing to The Dance of the Hours, a perennial Arthur Fiedler favorite.

Students from Conservatory Lab Charter School perform with Boston Landmarks Orchestra and soloists from Castle of our Skins. Students from Camp Harbor View will cap off a summer of unlocking creativity and potential with a performance of a new work they will co-compose musicians Jake Gunnar Walsh and Devin Ferreira and choreographer Chanel Thompson. Special lighting and commissioned projections will illuminate the surfaces of the Hatch Shell behind and around the orchestra.

Rain Date: Thursday, August 22, 2019. If it rains on August 22 as well, the concert will be held at an indoor venue to be announced.
