Boston Symphony Hall

Casual Fridays, a new young audience initiative will be introduced next Friday at the Boston Symphony Hall. With those concerts on three Friday-evenings, January 15, February 12, and March 18, the Boston Symphony Orchestra wants to make concerts more affordable and accessible for the next generation of attendees. The new, lower-priced Casual Fridays series includes a free pre-concert reception for all concert-goers, an opportunity for audience members to hear directly from the conductor and soloist from the Symphony Hall stage, and allows for the use of tablets – provided by the BSO – in a designated area of the hall. Subscribers who choose to take advantage of this digital media content can view in-depth information about the conductors and soloists, a score of the music being performed, and informative notes on the evening’s program. This new series also encourages concert-goers to wear their favorite casual attire to Symphony Hall, and includes a post-concert gathering in Higginson Hall, where they are encouraged to mingle and share their concert experiences in a relaxed setting with live music, snacks, and a cash bar.

The first concert will be conducted by François-Xavier Roth, and showcase Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp as well as Stravinsky’s Petrushka.
