Rent Function Space

You can add an exciting dimension to your evening and create lasting memories for your guests by holding your next event in this timeless setting.
Many groups attending Boston Symphony and Boston Pops concerts enhance their concert experience by renting function space in either Symphony Hall or in the adjacent Eunice and Julian Cohen Wing. These rooms can accommodate up to 380 people for a seated dinner, 550 for a standing reception, or 700 for a lecture, and are also available for events not held in conjunction with concerts.
