Advertising with Blue Heron
Blue Heron is performing to ever widening audiences; and more often. We are also collaborating with more organizations than we have in the past, thus broadening our reach. Past collaborators have included Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, the Currier Museum of Art, the Boston Early Music Festival, Monadnock Music and Harvard University.
Blue Heron has presented its own series of concerts in Cambridge since its founding in 1999. Our 2012-13 season will include two subscription series including five concerts in Cambridge and two in New York City. We will also present one non-subscription concert in Boston. Your ad will be seen by audiences at 8 different concerts in three cities. Residencies at Boston University and Boston College, an exciting collaboration with the Dalai Lama Center at M.I.T, our debut performance at the Rockport Festival, a collaboration with Parthenia (the viol consort based in NY) and workshops round out a very active season ahead.
