BSO Family Concerts

[BSO Education] The BSO's Family Concert Series provides engaging, age-appropriate, educational orchestral concert experiences especially for children ages 3-8 and their families.

[Arbella]

BSO Family Concerts are designed to build connection to the orchestra, orchestral music, the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras (BYSO), and Symphony Hall.

The BSO offers three Family Concert programs each season, one of which is performed by the BSO and conducted by Germeshausen Youth and Family Concerts Conductor Thomas Wilkins. As a part of a larger organizational partnership with BYSO, the other two are performed by the Boston Youth Symphony Orchestras.

Please note: BSO Family Concerts will be 50 minutes to one hour in duration.
