On July 7, 2022, longtime head of the Boston Celebrity series, Walter Pierce, passed away at the age of 91.

Pierce has been an arts administrator and manager in Boston for over 30 years. During his tenure at Boston Celebrity Series, he helped make the organization one of the city’s most enduring nonprofit arts organizations. Here, he collaborated with famous artists such as soprano Renee Fleming, tenor Pavarotti, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianist Vladimir Horowitz and many more.

After serving in the U.S. Army, Pierce moved to New York City to work for a theatrical advertising agency. Pierce’s career began promoting Broadway and off-Broadway shows, including productions for Yiddish theatre. In the late 1950s, as a freelance publicist, he promoted the Boston premiere of Frederico Fellini’s film “La Strada.” During this time, Pierce became one of the main promoters of the Metropolitan Opera’s annual Boston tour.

A private service will be held for the family. The series is scheduled to feature a celebratory concert for Walter in the fall of 2022. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Boston Walter Pierce Annual Performance Fund’s Celebrity Series.
