About the Professional Musicians Series:
NEMPAC presents the 4th season of its Professional Musicians Series held at the exclusive, private Bijou de la Vida art gallery and the beloved Ristorante Lucia, both in the North End of Boston. Bijou de la Vida provides an intimate concert experience in a private gallery seating 45 guests. Ristorante Lucia is located at the heart of Hanover Street that combines traditional favorites with innovative new dishes in a distinctive atmosphere. Artistically directed by Dr. Christina Wright-Ivanova, the program gathers music-lovers from our community for special evenings featuring Boston’s finest, emerging classical musicians.
Thanks to the generosity of Ruby Wines, Robert Giarratani Italian Wine Specialist, who will provide a pre-concert wine tasting, all proceeds will go towards the continuous support of NEMPAC’s mission to enrich Boston’s North End and neighboring communities by providing accessible, quality music education and performing arts programming.
