Onstage at Symphony


Onstage at Symphony Gives Community Musicians an Opportunity to Experience a "day-in-the-life" of a professional Musician Under the Leadership of BSO Germeshausen Youth and Family Concerts Conductor, Thomas Wilkins
Onstage at Symphony is a program designed for Massachusetts adult amateur musicians who have a love for musical performance but have pursued alternate career paths.

Participants will be selected from a pool of applicants on a lottery basis; the BSO will select enough musicians to constitute a full orchestra fitting of selected repertoire. Chosen participants will attend three rehearsals - one on Wednesday evening, one on Friday evening, and a final one on Saturday morning - and will complete their experience by performing a Saturday afternoon concert on the stage of Symphony Hall. In an effort to reduce barriers to access around the Symphony Hall experience, the final performance of the group will be free and open to the public. Music will be distributed to the participating musicians approximately four months prior to the first rehearsal.

Onstage at Symphony is on hiatus for the 2020-21 season. Please email education@bso.org with any questions or for more information.
