Radius Ensemble's community engagement program includes a free concert for young children at the Cambridge Public Library; free tickets for members of the community for whom price is a barrier to access; and the mentoring of chamber music-loving teens at the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.
Free Family Concert
This program remains on hold until the pandemic subsides and/or our youngest listeners can be vaccinated. We remain committed to sharing music with our very young friends and are in regular touch with the Cambridge Public Library staff about when it is safe to resume. Stay tuned!
Curious George Room

This concert is FREE thanks to the generosity of John and Ann-Mara Lanza.
