Hello TRC Family! We've got some bittersweet news to share. Studio A has closed permanently as of November 30th, 2018.

But fret not! It's just the first step in an exciting journey to expand our space and programs over the next 2 years. It isn’t easy to say goodbye to our first-born; Studio A contributed to countless projects and memories, but we know you'll be THRILLED with what we have in store for the Boston music community.

Has Studio A had an impact on you?

Share YOUR story about Studio A (or any TRC experience!) and help us fight for music making in Boston.
