Program Mission: BSO Community Chamber Concerts provide high-quality, relevant and engaging free chamber music concerts performed by BSO musicians in greater Boston area communities limited in access to the BSO by distance or economics. These concerts build personal connections to the BSO and orchestral music, allowing community members to become more deeply engaged with the BSO over time.

We are always on the lookout for new communities with which to connect through this concert series. Please complete the below FORM to submit a request for hosting a performance. The following are a few stipulations connected to being a host of a BSO Community Chamber Concert:
