While we are busy planning the SECOND annual Boston Jewish Music Festival for March 6-20, 2011, I’d like to share some of the incredible successes we accomplished this past year. And all of it was made possible by everyone who attended events, by the artist who performed, by the volunteers, the donors both large and small, the custodians, the sound technicians, the printers. So many people had so much to do with this incredible success.
- 17 Concerts and Workshops
- More than 20 Program Partners
- Events held across Greater Boston in Boston, Cambridge, Dedham, Framingham, Natick, Sharon and Waltham
- Over 8000 Web Site Visits
All this, on a just a shoestring budget.
Keep checking in on this blog for festival anecdotes and updates on future plans. And please share your favorite festival stories here, too.
