Dear Boston Culture Lovers,

I am so happy to announce this concert for this artist, Ali Amr, has been a favorite and frequent event for this group. We have paid many tickets to see and hear him play and now he is playing for free!

This will be also be co-event with Boston Cultural Nomads Meetup Group, http://www.meetup.com/Boston-Cultural-Nomads/events/126229572/

This event is part of a series of free ICA summer concerts, Harborwalk Sounds.

http://www.icaboston.org/programs/performance/

Museum admission is also free.

The concert takes place in the rear of the building, the back entrance to the museum.

There are a series of steps and a wide-space area where the musicians set-up their stage.

These steps face the water and have a gorgeous view of the Boston harbor.

For meeting purposes, lets meet at the bottom (front-row), center  of the steps at 6:30pm.

This venue is not that big and I am confident finding the group will be easy, however I just want to warn you of the possibility that you may miss-connect with the group if you are late. 

Organizers need to have an accurate attendance count to plan events. We need to know who and how many to expect.

Please show-up if you have reserved "YES" 

If you are a "MAYBE", please type “MAYBE” in the notes field or simply say " MAYBE " in the comments field for the event.

Reserving "YES" when you are a "MAYBE" is misleading and may be taking a space from someone who is on a waiting list. If you are “MAYBE” and you have reserved “YES”, you will be moved out of the “YES” list.

If you are no longer able to attend, please update your reservation to not attending.

A long and consistent history of  "no-shows" may cause you to be removed from the group.

I look forward in enjoying this event with the group.

Joana

Concert Details

 

 

Performer: Ali Amr

Palestinian-born Ali Amr takes a journey into an exotic blend of original jazz with a modern Middle Eastern vibe, influenced by touches of flamenco to bring a flair for the unexpected. He gives a mesmerizing performance of vocals and qanun, backed by keys, bass, and percussion.

    Ali Amr just posted "1200 People tonight at ICA reserved seats for my Show. Berklee/ Boston Friends...Let's go up to 2000!!! ICA ARE YOU READY!???" Don't know what that means for us but just thought I'd share.

    I'm going to try to get there at 6pm or earlier. If anyone else is also and wants to try to find each other, please comment and we can share cell phone #s or something.

    I know that many of you reserved "yes" awhile ago and that your plans may have changed since. I would like to know who and how many to expect, please double check your schedule and if you are no longer able to attend, please change your reservation to "not attending".

    Meeting time is at 6:30pm and the meeting place is at the bottom (front-row), center of the steps of the main seating area. The seating area is the series of steps that face the water and have a gorgeous view of the Boston harbor. I expect a lot of people at this event. There will be multiple Meetup groups. So far we have 26 people signed up for this group and 60 people signed up with the Boston Cultural Nomads.

    Last time I got there I was surprised the music had already started, but the ICA site says from 6 pm. Museum is free from 5 so I plan to get there early enough to see some of the Museum too. The food they offered for sale outside when i came a few weeks ago was delicious, and reasonably priced, I thought, at $8. other folks thoughts on that?

    Yeah! I was going to make this an event. I'm hosting the event to see Ali Amr at Ryles on Wed for only $10. He's so great, and this event is free!

    Depending on how people feel, we could go to the Barking Crab or some other place for eats and drinks after the concert?
