Boston Symphony Orchestra

The Boston Symphony Orchestra is composed of distinguished musicians from around the world. The BSO’s Education programs offers high quality, relevant, multi-leveled, and interactive education. 2015-16 BSO Youth Concerts, geared toward students in grades 4 through 6, act as an introduction to the full orchestra experience, encouraging long-term ownership of orchestral music and the BSO, and delivering positive character development messages through each performance. The BSO's High School open rehearsals program offers students in grades 8 through 12 an opportunity to observe first-hand the rehearsal experience of a professional orchestra. The BSO also offers high school and college cards, which give students regular access to performances at Symphony Hall; the BSO Young Artists' Competition; and supplementary materials for teachers and students.
