Beacon Hill Civic Association Community Corner

The Beacon Hill Civic Association is pleased to collaborate with our nonprofit neighbors, providing opportunities to come together, to learn and to enjoy. Throughout the year, the BHCA presents Historic Preservation Roundtables with the Museum of African American History, Summer Evenings at Otis House with Historic New England, and Evening at the Esplanade with Beacon Hill Village to name a few.

In the spirit of Evening at 74, which was held last November at 74 Joy St. with a concert by the Neave Trio of the Longy School of Music, we begin a new collaboration at Beacon Hill Friends House, with a special presentation “East of the Sun, West of the Moon – Traditional Turkish Music & Classical Piano Improvisations”. Ceren Turkmenoglu, a Turkish violinist, will join the talented classical pianist, Christos Vayenas for this intimate evening of traditional Turkish music of the Ottoman Empire & Western Classical Piano Improvisations, accompanied by Turkish food, wine and conversation.

This exciting event will take place on Thursday, November 8th, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Beacon Hill Friends House, 6 Chestnut St., Beacon Hill. Tickets can be purchased online at, or by calling the BHCA at 617-227-1922. We hope you can join us.
