Concerts @the Crane: Winter/Spring Concert Series

Select Sundays in February and March, starting at 3:00 p.m.

This winter we invite you to come to the library for a rich variety of music and dance, representing some of the many compelling and beautiful artistic traditions of our diverse city. All concerts are made possible through the generous sponsorship of the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Genesis Chamber Singers

Genesis Chamber Singers is an 8-member professional vocal ensemble located on Boston’s South Shore. Innovating the concept of musical performance by integrating the audience into the experience, Genesis wants to remove the formal barriers people often feel between themselves and classical musicians. Their performances provide opportunities for audience members to discuss the music with the singers. Learn more on the group's website. Learn more in this interview, filmed for QATV:
