The rehearsal tickets are less expensive than regular performance tickets. At 9:30 a.m., somebody from the BSO comes out and delivers a knowledgeable talk about the pieces you are going to hear. Our lecturer played a few recorded snippets to enhance our understanding of the...More
Experiencing this exquisite orchestra in person renews my spirit, stirs my imagination, and stretches my thoughts beyond the ordinary, day to day. Players experience the music in their unique ways engaging the audience in the dynamics and harmonies of this complex form of human expression....More
Founded in the 1880s Boston Symphony is one of the main orchestra in the US.while having its concerts mostly in the city ,it moves to Tanglewood in summer months. Quite an experience in relaxation. The 2018-19 will commence on September 2.

Each year we try to experience the wonderful Christmas celebration the BSO presents. This year, 2017 we were fortunate to have a new choral director from England who conducted our performance. James Burton was exuberant and dlightfulful and we enjoyed it so much we will...More
Arriving 3 hours before the Friday afternoon concert we parked just across the street at the Westland Avenue Garage ($25@10hrs) and took the T-Line, one stop to Prudential Tower for early dinner. It was cold&rainy but we had pre-purchased our tickets missing last year’s presentation...More
Prior to the actual concert, Derek Bermel discussed his composition and philosophy. This added so much depth to understanding the performance! The matinee performance was amazing - Bermel, Prokofiev, and Strauss with guest violinist Leonidas Kavakos.
The conductor guided a flawless performance while seeming to...More

Beethoven never disappoints, and seeing his work performed by a world-class orchestra in this temple to Beethoven (his is the only name inscribed above the stage) is something that no one should miss. The visiting piano soloist was sublime and the maestro majestic. Looking at...More
The Curse of the Bambino may have ended years ago, but loyal Red Sox fans will continue to infiltrate this home to historic Fenway Park, where you can find victory banners, people yelling in stereotypical Boston accents, and lots of sports bars. Located within Kenmore Square, the old gas station Citgo sign is another Boston skyline classic seen throughout the city. In addition to a hectic and diehard sports
mentality, this neighborhood is also home to some of Boston’s many universities. Move from Boston University territory to that of Northeastern, and spend time at the famous Museum of Fine Arts. For more culture, check out the smaller but equally beautiful Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Continue off the beaten path and check out the green space in the Back Bay Fens, a pretty community garden. This diverse neighborhood has a mix of universities, sports, culture, and more residential green space.
