Boston Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to announce programs for the 2021-22 Season, September 30-April 30, and the reopening of Symphony Hall for concertgoers.

The Boston Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Andris Nelsons present a 2021-22 Symphony Hall season, September 30-April 30, that will first and foremost celebrate reuniting with their music community post-pandemic, while also continuing the orchestra’s commitment to welcoming new audiences to experience the singular gifts the BSO and Mr. Nelsons are so eager to share with devoted listeners in Boston and throughout the world. This commitment to returning to performances with audiences is matched by an equally strong commitment to the health and safety of everyone associated with the BSO, including patrons, staff, and musicians.

In celebration of the reopening of Symphony Hall, the BSO will present a free community concert, under the direction of Andris Nelsons, Keith Lockhart, Thomas Wilkins, and John Williams, on October 3.

Pray for his health. A quite stressful schedule for a 89year old! And very inspiring!

A baton is to Williams what a lightsaber is to Yoda.

How nice. I think his "serious" music should deserve a lot more recognition, because this music is so beautifully virtous (often also transcendental) and can definitely keep up with the great composers before him (who are all already dead, as we know :)).

FYI, Mutter wrote on her Facebook/Instagram that she will soon record the Violin Concerto No.2 in Boston with JW, along with "more film themes".
