The Dorothy Curran Wednesday Night Concert Series returns to City Hall Plaza from July 12 through August 30.

We have another great season of outdoor music to entertain music fans of all ages, including:

  • Strictly Sinatra by Michael Dutra
  • Disco Night with Stardust
  • a tribute to the great Stevie Wonder with Natural Wonder, and
  • the smooth R&B stylings of Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes.  

Now celebrating 45 years as Boston’s longest-running free outdoor concert series, these performances bring four summer nights of great entertainment to this unique venue located in the heart of Boston.  All shows begin at 7 p.m.

The series is presented by Mayor Martin J. Walsh, the Mayor’s Office of Tourism, Sports, and Entertainment, and the Boston Parks and Recreation Department in partnership with title sponsor Bank of America.  Additional support is provided by media sponsor the Boston Herald, night sponsor AARP Massachusetts, and Polar Beverages.  

The series kicks off July 12 with AARP Massachusetts Night featuring Strictly Sinatra and the music of Ol’ Blue Eyes as Michael Dutra takes to the stage drawing from a repertoire of more than 500 Sinatra classics.

City Hall Plaza favorite Stardust returns on August 16 for Disco Night featuring classic dance floor and pop hits.  Stardust is, in essence, a “Super-Band” formed by gathering some of the most talented and experienced musicians in the entertainment industry and honed by over a decade of active rotation. 

On August 23 Natural Wonder features a full band experience complete with a crack rhythm section, horn section, and the formidable Gabriel Bello, a #1 Billboard-ranked vocalist, producer and multi-instrumentalist, channeling the energy and artistry that has made Stevie Wonder an icon across decades and genres.  The Dorothy Curran Wednesday Night Concert Series closes August 30 with the classic Philly soul of Harold Melvin’s Blue Notes.
