I had the opportunity to catch Yo-Yo Ma playing with the Symphony and I must say, the venue is amazing and the show was better than I expected. I look forward to catching my next concert here in Boston!!

Do not miss this group if you are in the area and have time. World famous, and excellent! Nice options are boxed dinners and opera glasses if you are sitting in the back, and don't forget to have a cocktail in the lounge area.

Well worth getting tickets for a concert if you are in Boston - you can book them online from overseas and print them out at home before coming. They played Stravinsky when I went, not a big fan of his music, but I must say that they played it well with energy.

A Boston Landmark as many large cities have a SO but in Boston there is so much heritage associated with the BSO not to mention July 4th and Summer concerts in Stockbridge MA.

Even though I just listened to the latest rehearsal, this is one of a handful of top international orchestras.

Great symphonic orchestra--lives up to their reputation! Exciting. We caught a Saturday night performance. Took the "T" right to the Hall--no need for a car and parking issues. True professionals and almost a full house. You can leave your tie home if you want to go casual.

an excellent performance of Sibelius Violin Concerto followed by Shubert's Great Symphony. Wonderful, warm acoustics and virtuoso performances. Older crowd on a Friday afternoon.
