Berklee Performance Center Information

Berklee Performance Center - Concert Venue | Music Venue | Performing Arts Center in Boston.

Musicians of all kinds abound in Boston thanks in no small part to the Berklee College of Music, and these budding performers often get their first taste of the spotlight at the Berklee Performance Center.

While the building was originally constructed in 1915, Berklee did not acquire it until 1972. After renovations that modernized the Berklee Performance Center’s lighting and sound systems, the 1,215-seat venue was reopened in 1976. While the Berklee Performance Center functions primarily as a place for students to showcase their work, other performers and comedians have graced the stage over the years, such as the Talking Heads, Thomas Dolby, Bill Maher, and Glen Hansard.

Berklee Performance Center is accessible by both the Orange and Green lines, so patrons can also choose to take their chances at finding parking along Massachusetts or Huntington Avenues, or drop their cars in one of the nearby garages for a fee.

Depending on what kind of music tickles your fancy, keep an eye on the concerts at Berklee Performance Center, since shows range from rock, jazz, classical, indie, and folk. You might just see the next big performer in his or her first show, and have bragging rights for years to come.

Treat Your Ears

I couldn't thought of a more enjoyable music event to attend than the Lunar New Year Concert held in Berklee Performance Center. I laughed and danced with the music all along. I was stunned by the vocalists and bands. Here is what I have to say to everyone after coming home--join the mailing list and be ready to jump on exciting cross genre performances Berklee Performance Center, aka BPC, has to offer. Located on Mass Ave, the beautiful BPC is known for holding a large variety of music events since 1972. Events calendar for BPC is busy as Berklee musicians refuse to ignore such a conjunction with a bigger audience. Bigger names in music industry also come up to BPC for its appreciation of the performers, a more dedicated crowd to music and audio system in BPC, which drives me back to BPC personally. It's safe to say BPC has state-of-the-art sound system. The room holds more than 1,200 people and most of the times you find a full house. The stage is of perfect size for a band and a small orchestra but fits a full orchestra as well. Sitting in the back does not stand in the way of fully enjoy the music at all. The sound quality is very consistent through out the room. I have joined the mailing list and is waiting for some of my favorite bands to come to town and I'll be able ask my Berklee friends to get me some free tickets.
Superb music (of Glen Hansard) at a creative place

Having as of yet only attended a concert given by Glen Hansard, I can only fairly judge the arena from this one experience, but that said, I will be back as soon as possible. Upon entry, the concert hall seemed small and oddly shaped, with its extensive and long path to the stage, but this proved to be the ultimate set-up for the quality of sound. The hall is odd, but quant nonetheless. The ambiance in the arena was soft and quite homey, though the music reached the ears of every person in the audience. At the time that I attended the concert, Glen Hansard was relatively unknown, and I was incredibly grateful to Berklee for allowing him to give the concert in such a major city as Boston. After having read up on the hall itself after the concert, I realised that the sort of musicians that are invited there are very unique, allowing them to gain a following without permitting obnoxious fans to come near their music and, in the end, to ruin them. The concert, hall, and talent combined with the charisma of Glen Hansard as a person (apart from the incredible musician he is) provided the /best/ concert experience I've ever had to date.
