The Arthur Goldberg Summer Concert Series is held one Sunday each month, rain or shine, from July to September at 2Life Communities’ campus in Brighton, Massachusetts. Concerts are held at 2:00 p.m. in the Kurlat Courtyard and are open to the public. Blankets and chairs are encouraged. 2Life Communities builds superior affordable housing for older adults in communities where people can explore, learn, connect, and thrive. Our campuses are hubs of activity and opportunity where older adults can age affordably and live well. We think of our walls as permeable and invite people from the surrounding communities to listen and socialize side by side with our residents.
