Treya Lam’s cinematic songs layer ethereal vocals over Nina Simone-inspired piano, meditative guitar, and lush chamber arrangements that reveal her training in classical music — Lam’s multi-instrumental debut album Good News was produced by guitar virtuoso Kaki King. For this socially-distanced event, Lam performs in a re-imagined concert courtyard, that takes advantage of an industrial roll-top garage door and adjacent gallery overlooking the brick-lined courtyard to reveal a new stage, dramatically floating 12ft. above the audience.
Make a Plan Live events at MASS MoCA will look and feel a little different this summer, but our mission remains unchanged — to bring you the best performing arts of our time.
Performances will take place outside, in MASS MoCA’s Courtyard D concert venue, in accordance with Massachusetts Phase 3 guidance
Our staff will be wearing masks and smiles, (even if you can’t see them). All audience members must wear a mask, except while eating or drinking. All eating or drinking needs to take place within each designated audience space.
As always, you’ll enter for concerts and events through the main museum entrance, though this time we need you to bring your own chair.
All potential bottlenecks, especially at the museum entrance, will be marked for social distancing. To keep your transaction as touch-free as possible, please have your e-ticket ready to be scanned.
Follow signs for Courtyard D, our reimagined concert venue, where ushers will show you to your personal, appropriately distanced concert space (four people maximum, per space). You’ll find food and drink service in this courtyard. Aisles will be one-way.
Restrooms are adjacent to this Courtyard D concert space, with one-way entrance and exits to reduce potential traffic friction.
All events are rain or shine and we expect most performances to last for about one hour.
No outside food or beverages will be allowed in the venue during the event. Lickety Split, the MASS MoCA café, will serve a concert menu, in take-out boxes. Pre-order here or place an order in person once you arrive.
All events at MASS MoCA are accessible to all audiences. Please contact email@example.com if you would like to inquire about accessibility needs and services.
By purchasing a ticket to join MASS MoCA’s visitors, staff, and artists on the museum campus, you agree to follow a COVID Courtesy Code, detailed here.
