COVID-19 Update: With the heartbreaking but necessary cancellation of concerts, the BSO is able to continue to provide great programming digitally for free because of the generosity of donors who support us by making outright gifts and giving the value of the tickets from cancelled concerts. Thank you for helping us through this unprecedented challenge.

  • The BSO Development Office is conducting business on a largely remote basis, due to social distancing requirements. We are still able to receive mail, process transactions, receive voicemails, and emails. We look forward to sending paper confirmation of all transactions as soon as we are safely able. Voicemails are being received and returned on a regular basis.
