Summer Concerts at Brewer Plaza

The Brewer Fountain, gifted to the city in 1868 by Gardner Brewer, is one of the most memorable features in the historic Boston Common. Every workday this summer there will be a Berklee pianist playing lunchtime music on the solar-powered piano underneath the fountain. On Thursdays at 5:00 p.m., the week’s featured pianist will also perform with a trio. (View Map)
