“Some excitement at this performance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

My second time to see the symphony and this performance was wonderful but did have one moment that stopped the orchestra. A member of the choir had an incident and the conductor stopped the music went to the aid of the choir member came back and picked up where they left off, without breaking the allure of the symphony. Truly a very professional organization and any one who comes to Boston should make a point to see one of the finest symphonies in the world.

“Magical, just Magical!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a world class Orchestra....no doubt about it! The acoustics are super. The energy level and sound almost makes you sit on the edge of your seat for whole performance. I have heard Arthur Fiedler conduct and everyone since then. Give yourself a gift of beauty. There's nothing like classical music played well in a famous setting.

“Iconic Conductor John Williams at the Symphony”

Loved the atmosphere, the facilities and the beautiful acoustics of the Symphony. It was such a pleasure to be in the midst of a full, happy and proud community of music lovers who showed their love and appreciation of one of their country's musical icons. Great occasion!

“What a way to end our trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

John Williams was conducting this one and it featured music from films.
We especially liked the convenience of getting to Symphony Hall on the green line subway.
