Enjoying a Lunchtime Musical Interlude in Boston, Massachusetts
The organist, nodding above the keys, uses his body language to coax classical notes from the gleaming pipes of the organ in the loft, and the sound swells, filling the airy, white-columned 18th-century church. The small crowd gathered in the boxed pews below takes a midday time-out to enjoy this Tuesday treat. Each week King’s Chapel offers free recitals, featuring a range of music (classical, folk, global, jazz) from a variety of musicians, so the experience is different each time. The 30- or 40-minute session makes a great lunch break for local workers or an opportunity for tourists to view the historic church’s interior while enjoying the concert.
