"When I think of the Hatch Shell, I envision gorgeous music, community, and a love for my city. Memories of concerts, walks, and bike rides along the Esplanade come to mind. With Hatched, my team and I are elated to create a new type of expression that brings original music, visuals, and new technology to the iconic structure, encouraging viewers to form a new memory of the space - a memory that will carry us into the New Year and beyond, celebrating creativity, resilience, and joy," said Artistic Director and Composer of Hatched, Maria Finkelmeier.
