You’ll leave feeling a deeper connection to the Boston community and inspired by the connections made and futures being built.
The Intersection of Music, Medicine, and Innovation
Ah, the sweet sound of music, medicine, and innovation colliding. Enjoy a concert by the Longwood Symphony, a nationally recognized orchestra made up of primarily healthcare professionals from Boston's leading hospitals and universities, including doctors, medical students, research scientists, nurses, therapists, and caregivers. Following the performance, conducted by Ronald Feldman, some of the musical-medical stars will participate in a panel discussion.
At BKBX, fitness, technology, and recovery come together for an experience inspired by adventure. Brooklyn Boulders’ new training concept, BKBX blends outdoor adventure with scientifically-backed and monitored programming. Join us for a HubWeek only recovery session in their specialty recovery studio (think: a cryotherapy and compression sleeves) while we hear from the Director of Sports Science about what makes these gadgets work and learn, too, about their proprietary Adventure Quotient algorithm.
Change Makers: Live
The history of a neighborhood lives through the stories that are told about and within it. Listen in as we interview and record three Allston Change Makers at Zone 3 to learn about the past, present and possible futures for this diverse community.
The Music of Strangers Screening
Since the beginning of the new millennium, an extraordinary group of musicians has come together to celebrate the universal power of music. Named for the ancient trade route linking Asia, Africa, and Europe, the Silkroad Ensemble exemplifies the ability of music to blur geographical boundaries, blend disparate cultures, and inspire hope for both artists and audiences. Blending performance footage, personal interviews, and archival film, the film focuses on the personal journeys of a small group Silkroad Ensemble mainstays — Kinan Azmeh (Syria), Kayhan Kalhor (Iran), Yo-Yo Ma (France/United States), Wu Man (China), and Cristina Pato (Spain) — to chronicle passion, talent, and sacrifice.
