Location

Baxter Park
Assembly Row

Due to forecasts of inclement weather, Somerville’s Memorial on the Mystic Concert originally scheduled for Monday, May 29, at Baxter Park, has been moved indoors to the Somerville High School auditorium beginning at 7:30 p.m. The fireworks have been canceled. The indoor concert is free of charge.

This performance capstones Memorial Week with a musical performance that illustrates the true meaning of Memorial Day, and provides a message of hope for our country as we honor those brave men and women who paid the ultimate price for freedom. The evening ceremony will combine the talents of the Metropolitan Wind Symphony, vocal ensemble N ’Harmony, and special performances by the Somerville All-City Chorus and the Somerville High School Chorus.

The highlight of the evening will be a stunning fireworks display over the Mystic River honoring the service and sacrifice of all who serve and have served our Nation.  Special thanks to our event sponsors Federal Realty Investment Trust, and Wynn Resorts/Wynn Boston Harbor.
