About CSN Boston

The world’s longest running songfest, celebrating our 20th Anniversary in Boston!!

Our vision in 2004 was simple: To bring the nationally acclaimed performance series Chick Singer Night to Boston, creating a showcase opportunity for singers in the Boston area. Add to this our deeply rooted passion for helping to keep music and arts alive in our schools and community and CSN Boston was born. Over the last 20 years we have had the privilege of sharing the stage with many, many incredible artists and are proud to have been able to donate over $30,000 to music and arts programs in our local schools and community.
