The BSO is one of Boston's premier institutions. It presents a long season of classical music of the highest quality. The acoustics in Symphony Hall are superb and add to the experience.
If you can possibly go to a BSO concert in Symphony Hall, do so. Fabulous music, attractive and acoustically superior hall and one of the grand old ladies of Boston. Best seats are in the orchestra, sides of the balcony next to the stage or the center of the two balconies, mid to rear sides of balconies give obstructed views... More
Wonderful performance with some chilling moments. Total disaster at Will Call with lengthy lines and what appeared to be pretty disorganized (inexperienced?) staff.

The conductor was very young but amazingly talented. He will assume the title of maestro at the beginning of the year. Boston is blessed to have such a wonderful orchestra.
