Casual Fridays
François-Xavier Roth conducts Mozart and Beethoven featuring pianist Benjamin Grosvenor

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall - Boston, MA - View Map

Four Friday-evening concerts-one each in October, January, February, and April- are designated "Casual Fridays" this season. You are invited to wear your favorite casual attire, and to arrive early to enjoy a free, pre-concert reception before you take your seat. This lower-priced series also features a special section for Conductor Cam seating, which allows patrons to watch the conductor from the orchestra's perspective. You can also use ConcertCue in this section. ConcertCue is a mobile web application that streams synchronized program notes during a live musical performance. These program notes include text, images, and other rich media, precisely timed to important events in the music itself. The goal is to help audience members better appreciate and understand the music they hear. ConcertCue will be available in the Conductor Cam seating areas only.

Then, immediately after the performance, head to the post-concert reception, where, besides enjoying live music, snacks, and a cash bar, you are invited to mingle and share what you've just experienced at the BSO concert.
