What's not to like about the BSO? They are world class - and the venue is awesome. Looking forward to Holiday Pops!

“world class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

This incredibly beautiful concert hall provides probably the best acoustics in the US and a huge variety of musical offerings; take note...best seats for sound are in the second balcony, center rows...We have subscribed for twenty years and feel lucky to be able to do so.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The hall was run down, the stage was messy and the whole production seemed to be disorganized. The musicians themselves were great but I had much higher expectations from Symphony Hall!

“An institution in Boston. If you get a chance don't miss them!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

If you have a chance to see BSO in Symphony Hall, don't pass it up. The quality of this symphony is amazing, and the fun they have with holidays, their Pops group that plays on the Esplanade, all provide a huge amount of enjoyment and they mix it up with style so you're not stuck with a lot of heavy music, or just pop. I've seen a number of orchestras around the world, and BSO has a way that touches their audiences and acknowledges the varying tastes so they're accessible.
