This is not your average concert.

Beyond the Notes is a unique and interactive concert experience that gives the audience a chance to get to know the performers beyond what can be read in their bios.

In addition to presenting some of today’s most sought after musicians, Beyond the Notes invites audience members to participate in the concert by submitting written questions. Questions are selected randomly and answered live on stage by the performers throughout the concert. 

Following the concert, all questions are answered on the Beyond the Notes website.

Violinist Sarah Whitney, founder and Artistic Director, believes that too often there is a barrier between the audience and the performers when the audience knows little about the musicians they are watching. The mission of Beyond the Notes is to change the concert experience because getting to know the musicians on stage can significantly change the listening experience.  

Beyond the Notes was founded 5 years ago and presents its flagship concert in the Boston-area annually, introducing a new guest artist or artists every year. Beyond the Notes also partners with organizations around the US to bring this unique concert experience to other communities to reach as many people as possible. 

A lot of exciting new things are in the works for Beyond the Notes and 2019 dates will be announced soon! Please sign up for our newsletter to stay updated on concert announcements and news!
