In addition, local artists and ensembles will be showcased through a series of free Neighborhood Arts streaming concerts, to be broadcast from local venues and living rooms on Thursday evenings throughout the fall. This series begins with a performance by the Jason Palmer Quintet (Sept. 10); later featured artists include violinist/erhu player Shaw Pong Liu (Sept. 17), National Poetry Slam champion Regie Gibson (Oct. 8), dance company Abilities Dance Boston (Oct. 29), and rapper Devin Ferreira (Dec. 10).
Another brand-new virtual program is “Black Voices,” created in collaboration with Colombian dance company Sankofa Danzafro. The company was originally supposed to perform in town in January; instead, director Rafael Palacios will guide participating Bostonians of color in translating their personal narratives into three-minute dance pieces through online sessions. Dates, times, and participants are yet to be determined.
Tickets go on sale July 23 at 10 a.m. at www.celebrityseries.org.
