Concert for Our City: Reunited at Symphony Hall

Thomas Wilkins conducting Concert for Our City in 2020

Sunday, October 3 | 3pm
In March 2020, the BSO performed what would prove to be the last live performance in front of an audience at Symphony Hall for over a year. While we continued to share our music virtually, and then throughout the neighborhoods of Boston and at our summer home at Tanglewood, we are thrilled to finally reconnect with our Symphony Hall audiences this fall.

It is our pleasure to invite you to a free celebration concert on Sunday, October 3 at 3pm. Concert for Our City: Reunited at Symphony Hall will feature the BSO’s four conductors and special guest soloist, Anne-Sophie Mutter.

 


All tickets have been reserved for this performance

 

Please note that the concert containing most of the selections will be available to view online for free on BSO NOW and on bso.org beginning October 14.
