The music scene here in Boston is multicultural, diverse in styles and venues, and very accessible—even some without a fee. Whether it’s the Boston Symphony Orchestra, The Boston Pops, rock bands or solo concerts at Harborlights Pavilion at Fan Pier or the Hatch Shell on the Esplanade, or jazz concerts at clubs such as the House of Blues®, the options in the city appeal to a wide range of tastes. One venue that might not be on your radar for music is the Museum of Fine Arts.
