On Mondays starting at 10am, you can reserve a ticket for available concerts occurring within the week ahead (linked above once you log in), one (1) ticket per concert series. Tickets will default to mobile tickets unless you select "hold at Box Office" for that week's available performances. Ticketing ends two hours prior to concert time.

Card tickets are made available on a week-by-week basis during the BSO season, subject to availability. We do not guarantee that any particular concert will be offered, but we typically offer at least one performance for most BSO programs.
