BSO, Pops, Tanglewood, and Symphony Hall Logos
Each year, some 600 Boston and Tanglewood volunteers offer their enthusiasm, leadership, and more than 17,000 hours of their cumulative time in service of the BSO’s musical mission. The high points of this season would not have been possible without their unflagging commitment.

Meet Paul and Marilyn Flaum

For over forty years, Paul and Marilyn Flaum have been integral to summers at Tanglewood. As BSAV volunteers since 1981, Paul and Marilyn welcomed many new and old friends to the Berkshires. From teaching classes about the BSO and local history to serving as ushers, they shared well over 15,000 hours of their time. In 2011, Paul was the second recipient of the Carrie L. Peace Spirit of Volunteering award. As they step back from active volunteering, Paul and Marilyn took a moment to reflect on their experience with the BSO and shared some favorite memories. We are so grateful for their years of service and dedication to making Tanglewood a welcoming destination for all.
