Directions to the Open Rehearsal

The Metropolitan Waterworks Museum near Cleveland Circle is very easy to reach by public transportation (recommended!) but parking AT the Museum is extremely limited--20 dedicated places:

Do not park in the spaces reserved for the associated condominium! The above link will give subway directions. Note that the # 86 bus runs from Sullivan Sq, through Harvard Sq., to Cleveland Circle. Get off at Beacon St. Itís a about a 7 min walk.

There are about 20 metered lots at the corner of Beacon Street and Chestnut Hill Avenue. In addition, there is metered parking on the outbound side (away from the city) of Beacon Street, both roadside in front of the shops and restaurants and in the center median and on Chestnut Hill Avenue. Metered parking in Boston and Brookline is free on Sundays.

Directions to the Concert and Parking

Walking/ MBTA:

Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church is located at 1555 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, opposite the north end of the Cambridge Common, and is about a 7-8 minute walk from the Harvard Sq. Red Line exit. (Please use crossing lights!)

The church can be reached by the #77 bus, which runs about every 10-12 min at the time of our concert. The church is at the first stop (Jarvis St) as the bus exits the underground upper busway, Harvard Sq.

Coming from Arlington/N. Cambridge, get off at the last stop before the bus enters the tunnel (Waterhouse St.) and cross the street carefully. 


Harvard visitor parking will be available to our guests by on-line pre-purchase.  You may purchase parking starting December 3 or shortly thereafter.  It is recommended that you not purchase your parking in a last-minute rush as it takes a bit of time to work through the Harvard website. The cost is $8 for the day.

Click the link above, then under the Visitor menu on the left, choose "Online Daily Permit." Next, click on the "Daily Visitor Parking Permit Online Purchase System" link, located in the last paragraph in the middle of the screen. At the bottom right, choose Visitor. If you have not already done so, you will need to register. When registering, choose as department, "Visitor," and enter as the department code "7700." Follow the directions on the site (and on our directions page) to buy your permit(s). When asked for Affiliation, Choose "Event Participant." In the box for your event, put in "MIT-Harvard Women's Chorale."

You will also have to choose a parking lot or garage.  We recommend the 52 Oxford Street garage (OXST) (an underground garage) which is accessible by taking a right off of Mass Ave onto Everett Street (first street north of the church), continuing through the lights and following the road to the attendant’s booth. Other available lots/garages close to Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church are: the Littauer Lot (LITT) and the lot at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) (both with limited spaces). When purchasing your passes online, note that in the drop down menu of garages, that there is a distinction among weekday, weeknight, and weekend for each lot--choose weekend for concert day. Once the permit has been purchased you can print your permits by logging into the site, clicking on My Account and then Account History.

It's a good walk from the garage to the church, so leave yourself an extra 10 min or so to park and get there.

Permits must be purchased prior to arrival at the parking facility, and must be displayed at all times when parked on campus. Payment may be made by credit card. Permits may not be purchased over the phone. For troubleshooting purchasing, see Harvard Parking's FAQs page, near the bottom of the page.

On-street parking meters are located north of the church on Mass. Ave., across from the church along the Cambridge Common, across the Common on Garden St., and behind the church on Oxford and Kirkland St.
