WorldMusic/CRASHarts – World Music and Dance Stars
WorldMusic/CRASHarts is an organization dedicated to bringing top world music and dance stars to Boston. Many world class recording artists have performed in the area as a result of their sponsorship. In addition to concerts, they also produce lectures and lecture series, workshops, post concert and panel discussions, film presentations, and more, all of which are aimed at presenting these world renowned performers to the public in a more intimate non-concert setting.
The concert listings on their web site provide ample information about each performer including, sound and/or video clips, links to their web sites, reviews, and even quality downloadable images. Another feature they offer, which I really enjoy, is their monthly e-newsletter which lists upcoming performances and special promotions. They’ll also mail you a seasonal brochure if you ask.
Tickets can be purchased online for a $4.00 handling fee, or via phone, mail, or fax. If you opt to purchase them in person, you will find a convenient listing of box office information for all performance venues on their web site. If you want to avoid the online handling fee for up to four tickets per concert, you can become a member of CRASHarts. At the basic level, membership benefits also include opportunities for advanced ticket purchases and preferred seating.
I must say that of all the world music events which I attend throughout the year, CRASHarts concerts are truly a highlight of the Boston entertainment scene for me. I look forward to each and every performance I have scheduled on my personal calendar and have never walked away from one disappointed!
