Great seats for an excellent performance. The featured musicians in the triple concerto were world class and the orchestra easily met the challenge of playing with such great talent.

About the Ticket Supplier: Boston Civic Symphony

Founded in 1924 by the late educator, conductor and composer, Joseph Wagner, the Boston Civic Symphony is the second oldest symphony orchestra in the city. As one of Boston's most respected musical organizations, the BCS has distinguished itself from other local musical groups through its focus on presenting an unusually broad range of music by exceptionally skilled students and amateurs and through its emphasis on developing a broad-based audience. The BCS has defined its objectives as follows:

To encourage attendance by a diverse population from the Greater Boston area by offering moderately priced tickets and by distribution of a number of free tickets to underserved populations in Boston.

To provide orchestral training and experience under competent direction for teachers, students of music who are preparing for professional careers, and skilled amateurs.

To offer performances of unusual and contemporary works, with a special focus on American compositions, with leading soloists. The BCS performs four major concerts, which offer a range of classical and contemporary music.

The BCS's presentation of works by masters like Mozart, Beethoven and Brahms is balanced by its performances of pieces by contemporary American composers.
