Symphony for Our City

BSOThe BSO's Symphony for Our City Program allows the BSO to serve as a partner to non-profit organizations representing a wide range of missions and communities.
The program strives to build deeper relationships with representatives from various organizations across the greater Boston area, bringing together individuals of various backgrounds, and informing the BSO's work through reciprocal relationships.
Each year, the BSO will partner with up to ten community-based organizations in the greater Boston area. Chosen nonprofit partners will be engaged deeply with the BSO throughout the season. 

Benefits of participation may include:

  • Invitation to attend select BSO, Boston Pops, and Tanglewood programs 
  • Educational experiences connected to the BSO performances 
  • Program kick-off and wrap-up meetings at Symphony Hall 
  • An opportunity to network with other partners  

The program partners for the 2017-18 season have been selected and are listed below. For more information about applying for the 2018-19 Symphony for Our City program, email
