K A C FKorean American Cultural Foundation of Greater Boston

The Broadway to Boston (B2B) Theater Company was founded in 2013 as a group that fosters living arts for the Greater Boston area and provides local performers and musicians with an opportunity to share their talents in the Greater Boston communities. The members of B2B think that serving communities with their talents is a wonderful opportunity of getting involved and giving back their thanks to the communities which they have received from the societies in the past. Their musical talents could not have grown without the help of societies and communities.  They believe that it is a payback time to the communities where they belong and share their talents with the communities.  B2B has been designating their talents for local community events, including the musical showcases, church gospel events, opera concerts, and local NPO fundraising/Charity events, to share the joy of music and the care of our communities.
