Updated health and safety protocols for Symphony Hall, effective May 11
BSO, Pops, Tanglewood, and Symphony Hall Logos

Boston Symphony Association of Volunteers

In 1984, a group of dedicated supporters of the BSO established the BSAV to ensure that each facet of the organization exhibited the highest level of excellence. Each year, some 700 Boston and Tanglewood volunteers offer their enthusiasm, leadership, and more than 24,000 hours of their cumulative time in service of the BSO’s musical mission.

Members of the BSAV dedicate themselves to behind-the-scenes elements for special events, regularly serve as tour guides, docents, ushers, and team members for many other activities with the BSO’s numerous education and community engagement programs. Whether at a Youth Concert Instrument Playground, where a volunteer may enable a child’s first experience with a musical instrument, or in the Shed at Tanglewood where ushers warmly greet patrons new and familiar, BSAV volunteers represent an integral thread binding the BSO community.

The BSO is grateful to the BSAV for helping to support the organization’s history of excellence in musical performance and to sustain programs that broaden and deepen the BSO community.
