Boston’s beautiful symphony hall is widely considered one of the premier classical music venues in the United States. Adored with Greek and Roman statues and gilded ceilings, the hall is known for its beautiful interior as well as its superb acoustics. It is home to the Boston Symphony Orchestra, one of the country’s oldest and most celebrated.
The walls of the stage even slope down to increase the quality of the sound in the giant concert hall. Every detail was created or modified to enhance the acoustics, which makes for a phenomenal listening experience. The hall also contains an impressive 4,800-pipe organ.
With its exterior lined with columns and classical design, the hall obtained status as US National Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Past performances have included the works of classic composers such as Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Brahmns, and more.
The Boston Symphony Hall is accessible by car via Highway 93, or from the Heath Street/Brigham Circle "E" Green Line train’s Symphony stop. Attire is typically semi-formal, formal, or business. The hall is open from 10 am to 6 pm though performance times vary. Tours of the public areas of the structure are available by reservation.
