Mobile Music Makes way in Boston

Suzanne Kreiter/Globe staff

Sunday, September 18th through Tuesday the 20th, a unique vehicle will bring music to the Greater Boston area.  The Music Haul, a 17-foot U-haul truck which mechanically converts into a fully functioning stage with the touch of a button, will be touring Boston with concerts scheduled in the South End, Dorchester, and Christopher Columbus Waterfront Park. Later stops include performances at Harvard Square and the State House.

Writing for the Boston Globe, Malcom Gay reports that the Music Haul is, “the brainchild of Yellow Barn, an acclaimed center for chamber music tucked away in the hills of southeastern Vermont.”

“Its creators say the Music Haul’s main mission is to bring world-class concert performances to the most unlikely of places: schools, underserved neighborhoods, hospitals, perhaps even prisons.”

“Because it’s unexpected, people will not have preconceptions, and they won’t feel the fear of ignorance in the face of an experience they’ve never had before.  Without that expectation, you have a kind of vulnerability, an openness, that one needs to listen in the best possible way.”
