The Arbella Insurance Foundation BSO School Bus Program was created to help schools defray transportation costs associated with field trips to the BSO Youth Concerts and may award a grant of up to $300 to schools that meet the program eligibility requirements.* With many schools facing difficult budgeting decisions, these funds were established to help expand current curricula and allow your students the ability to experience the Boston Symphony Orchestra and historic Symphony Hall.
