Beacon Hill Civic Association Community Corner

Evening on the Esplanade – Wednesday, July 18

Beacon Hill residents are invited once again to a summer evening filled with music, camaraderie, and delicious food and wine at the opening night of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra on Wednesday, July 18th, at the DCR Hatch Shell on the Esplanade. Music Director Christopher Wilkins will lead the orchestra in music inspired by the heavens, including Debussy’s bewitching Clair de lune and Gustav Holst’s The Planets. In the centenary year of The Planets, the Orchestra will welcome the St. Paul’s Girls’ School Choir for whom its spell-binding finale was composed. Young musicians of ZUMIX will perform an original work echoing Holst’s fascination with the human psyche.

This much anticipated collaboration between Beacon Hill Village and the Beacon Hill Civic Association will begin at the Garden of the Church of the Advent from 5:30 to 6:30 pm with a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception, where guests can pick up their pre-ordered box dinners and walk to the Esplanade for the 7:00pm concert. The cost of the event includes the reception, a box dinner and a chair at the concert. BHV and BHCA members: $30. Non-members: $35. Please register at or call the BHCA at 617-227-1922.

The BHCA would like to thank our neighborhood businesses Charles Street Liquors, Panificio and Toscano for supporting this event.
