The Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts

Thank you for making Celebrity Series SHINE! again!

Celebrity Series sends immense thanks to the attendees and supporters of the SHINE! Gala for their generous support, and to our Gala Chairs Andrea & Fred Hoff, our Season Sponsors, Board Chair Joshua Boger and his wife Amy, Celebrity Series President & Executive Director Gary Dunning, and Artistic Programmers Bobby Asher, Karen Brown, and Hanako Yamaguchi for welcoming us back in style after a pandemic to celebrate the resiliency of live performance. The spectacular evening featured live performances from Summer Street Brass Band, The Westerlies, and Aoife O'Donovan, a hybrid DJ and band after party with DJ Chris Roxx, and many glamorous photo moments. Thank you for making SHINE! a success.

Thank you to our generous supporters!
