Stave Sessions returns in the 2022/23 season, in person for the first time since 2019. The festival was created to spotlight innovative and path-breaking contemporary music. Stave Sessions is a festival of discovery and experimentation.
In 2023, Stave Sessions moves to Somerville's Crystal Ballroom in Davis Square, and we're excited to join the roster of performers making this lovely brand-new space one of the city's best destinations for live music of all kinds.
“Stave Sessions, presented by the Celebrity Series of Boston, is dedicated to sharing a diverse array of top-level musicians in a relaxed concert format.”ANNE GOLDBERG-BALDWIN I CARE IF YOU LISTEN
