Program details

Music is a universal language. Through music, we can time travel to different places and time. Music is our natural environment, the sounds we take in when we pause, listen and question. Music helps us discover new worlds, or make our own world, and learn how to share it with others. Music is color, emotion, energy, rhythm, texture, and imagination. Music is good noise that inspires a freedom to imagine.

The Imagine Orchestra is a chamber jazz ensemble, with a unique approach to traditional concerts, where the music is both fully orchestrated and improvised in the moment. This ensemble represents how artists come to collaborate and “”imagine”” what the music whispers to musicians to reach for.

Celebrate Juneteenth!
Wednesday, June 19, 2024

Juneteenth is a federal holiday that recognizes the 13th amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This amendment outlawed the practice of enslaving people in America. For 246 years, generations of African American families were viewed as property, to be owned by another human being. Enslaved African Americans were bought, sold, separated from loved ones, forced to work without wages, and suffered inhumane conditions.

Juneteenth honors the “freedom fighters” and generations who came before us, as much as it recognizes their persistence towards freedom and restitution.

This year, Boston Children’s Museum celebrates Juneteenth with a variety of music, dance, and artmaking activities developed in collaboration with community organizations, independent artists, museum educators, and local entrepreneurs. Through these partnerships, the Museum highlights the ingenuity of African American artistic traditions born out of resistance. These practices continue to flourish and fuel modern day movements which advocate for the importance of speaking out against injustices of any kind.
