The ArchStreet Band

Six of Boston’s most prolific, professional musicians make up The Arch Street Band [TASB]. These folks perform regularly with their own award-winning bands, groups like the Boston Pops, Boston Symphony, Boston Children’s Chorus, and at local Jazz venues.  Also educators, members are on faculty at Tufts University, Berklee, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Shrewsbury Public Schools, and Concord Academy. Their care for worship, the Eucharist, and the work of the friars is reflected in their tenure, as they are among the longest-running lay-workers at the Shrine.
