The Boston Music Hall was a concert hall located on Winter Street in Boston, Massachusetts, with an additional entrance on Hamilton Place.
One of oldest continuously operating theaters in the United States, it was built in 1852 and was the original home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. The hall closed in 1900 and was converted into a vaudeville theater named the Orpheum Theatre. The Orpheum, which still stands today, was substantially rebuilt in 1915 by architect Thomas W. Lamb as a movie theater.
Note: The hall has no connection with Boston's "Music Hall", a theater which is now known as the Citi Performing Arts Center.
Famous quotes containing the words boston, music and/or hall:
“I mount the steps and ring the bell, turning
Wearily, as one would turn to nod good-bye to Rochefoucauld,
If the street were time and he at the end of the street,
And I say, Cousin Harriet, here is the Boston Evening Transcript.”
—T.S. (Thomas Stearns)
“How little it takes to make us happy! The sound of a bagpipe.Without music life would be a mistake. The German even imagines God as singing songs.”
—Friedrich Nietzsche (18441900)
“Let us not be too much acquainted. I would have a man enter his house through a hall filled with heroic and sacred sculptures, that he might not want the hint of tranquillity and self-poise.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
