Brookline Library Music Association

The Brookline Library Music Association (BLMA), founded in 1951, hosts six concerts each season. This provides an opportunity for talented young artists to perform and for members of our community to hear them. One of the oldest library music programs in the country, the BLMA is a distinguished part of the Brookline Library’s cultural programming. It operates independently of the Library, is volunteer-run, and has 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. Click to see our By-Laws


Concerts are free and held Sunday afternoons at 2:30 PM in Hunneman Hall on the top floor of the Brookline Village Library, 361 Washington Street, Brookline. There are six concerts per season from October through April. (No December concert.) Seating is limited to 80.

While BLMA concerts are free, the BLMA board has costs: we pay our performers and we have printing and piano tuning costs. Please help us maintain this proud Brookline tradition. As we enter our 64th season, we really need your help to carry on our BLMA concerts. Keep the music flowing in Hunneman Hall by becoming a BLMA member. BLMA Membership dues are $20 per year, and you will receive notification of each concert. If you would like to join, please send your check, along with an additional contribution if you are able, to:
