OUR CSN STORY

Founded in 2004, CSN Boston currently hosts two music benefit showcases each year highlighting female singer/songwriters.

During COVID-19 pandemic, our Spring and Fall 2020 shows, as well as our Spring 2021 show was cancelled. In an effort to keep the music flowing, CSN Boston began "Artists in the Round" virtual music showcase benefit shows.

Thanks to our many generous supporters, these fundraising events have enabled CSN Boston to donate ~$26,000 in the past seventeen years to support music programs in the Boston-area.

Patty says: “Love and fun and feeding my soul… This is what singing, performing and being able to share this means to me, and I’m grateful for the amazing times I’ve had singing both lead and back up with so many talented artists and musicians around the Boston and South Shore areas. Genres spanned from alternative and classic rock to funk and folk. I feel honored and thrilled to participate in the Chick Singer Night concert at the Burren in Somerville.”
