One of the world's great orchestras which usually has great visiting performers and is wonderful on its own.

We have been looking forward to hearing this famous orchestra live in its home venue and were not disappointed. The famed sound heard so often at home on CD had the extra hair-raising dimension live and the old slightly creaky seats added much to the...More

I attended a concert in April. I would like to say that the performance was great! I loved the first part of the concert with Shostakovich's Festive Overture and Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major. Anne Sophie-Mutter was amazing playing this concerto!. The second was...More

Excellent program and musicians. We love concerts and of course the BSO is one of THE BEST IN THE WORLD. I highly recommend to attend one of their concerts while visiting Boston. Excellent for adults and teenagers.

A very good place to spend time during a cold evening. Very good acoustics. I think a must see in a visit to Boston. It is one of the oldest and some rank it as one of the 'Big Five'. Some critics do not agree...More

My husband and I attend many concerts both in Boston and at Tanglewood - the summer residence of the BSO. The quality of music is one of the best in the world

The Christmas show was incredible! The best symphony concert I have ever been too and I usually fall asleep. They ended with a sing-a-long with some popular songs that everyone knows. A must see for people who love Christmas Music!

My friends wanted to visit so they booked for all of us. The hall is beautiful. The first hour was heaven, with an older beloved conductor. It was soothing and beautiful. I was really enjoying my visit. The second half was horrible, a gruesome opera...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

I'm not aware of tables at the Boston symphony but I do think a balcony seat would be great.
Are there any performances in August?

急な質問ですいません。 4月23日(木)PM8:00からのボストン交響楽団の公演のチケットを後輩が(きをきかせて)事前に取ってくれていたのですが、4月23日(木)のPM18:55にボストン・ローガン空港到着の飛行機のため、公演に間に合わないと思っています。遅れてもいいから行きたいと思うのですが、公演は何時までやっているのでしょうか?「開幕に遅れた場合は最初の幕間に着席する」と旅行雑誌に書いてあったのですが、どのくらいの遅れまで許されるのでしょうか?もしくはキャンセルはできるのでしょうか?教えてください。

すいません。訂正です。 すいません。先ほど質問の投稿したものです。 4月23日(木)は18:55空港着 ボストン交響楽団は20:00開演 です。入国審査、手荷物受取などで空港出るのが20:00くらいになってしまうと思います。
