BSO 101 at Symphony Hall

BSO 101-a free adult education series at Symphony Hall on four Wednesday evenings, 5:30-7PM
BSO 101: Are You Listening? returns in 2017-18, again offering the opportunity to increase your enjoyment of BSO concerts.
These four sessions with BSO Director of Program Publications Marc Mandel, joined by a member of the BSO, are designed to enhance your listening abilities and appreciation of music. Each session focuses on upcoming BSO repertoire, examining and illuminating aspects of musical shape and form, and of the composers' individual musical styles. Each session also includes recorded musical examples and is self-contained, so no prior musical training, or attendance at any previous session, is required.

A free tour of Symphony Hall is offered immediately following each BSO 101 session. Though admission to BSO 101 sessions are free, we request that you make a reservation by reserving a free ticket online. Contact Symphony Charge 888-266-1200 for any questions.
