Behind the Scenes at Symphony Hall

04/22/2017 - 11:30am

Please join us Saturday morning April 22, 2017 at 11:30 a.m. for a look at Symphony Hall through the eyes of the orchestra. A volunteer tour guide for the Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) will take you backstage so you can see the hall from the orchestra’s perspective.

We will also show you why the superb acoustics of Symphony Hall are legendary and tell you about the visionary Henry Lee Higginson, who founded and generously funded the BSO and who oversaw the building of this beautiful hall (designed by McKim, Mead & White, who also designed the Boston Public Library).

You will also be taken to the working area of the Hall, in the basement, where so much of the activity that we never see takes place, from the loading and packing of the instruments, to the practice rooms, and to the vast area that stores the seats and tables that enable Symphony Hall to be transformed into a cabaret twice a year for the Boston Pops concerts.

We will meet at Symphony Hall’s Massachusetts Avenue entrance to begin the tour.  The cost for the tour is $10 payable at the door. 

We will also gather at Brasserie JO’s, an easy walk from Symphony Hall, for lunch afterward.

Please scroll down this page to sign up for the tour.  When you do, we will email you to find out whether you will be joining us for lunch as well.  Thank you.
