Boston Classical Meetup was created to provide a general classical meetup group for veterans and rookies alike. We attend all types of classical performances: symphonies, operas, chamber works, etc. in all kinds of venues - even house parties! (think Schubertiade...)
We will usually be meeting after performances, sometimes before, and occasionally during. Pre- and post-performance activities (lectures, receptions, parties, etc) are usually part of the meetup itself, so be sure to check the details!
The Boston Opera Meetup works in tandem with the Boston Classical Meetup for opera events, but until I find a fluid system to integrate the two, the Boston Classical Meetup is usually the most up-to-date. If there is a meetup on Boston Opera, there will also be one at Boston Classical... but not necessarily vice versa.
Some highlights of upcoming concerts that are not yet meetups can be found in the calendar, but the best place to discover new performances (and perhaps create a meetup for one! :)) isThe Boston Musical Intelligencer calendar page.The meetup calendar page is not well integrated at the moment, but there may be more for it in store at some point. Until then, BMInt is definitely the way to go.
It's been nearly 4 years (we began in August 2011) since I started this group. It has been a challenge, but we have had some incredible events, met some fantastic (and sometimes famous) people, and made a lot of friends. Thank you for being a part of it!
