Founded by Benjamin Zander in 1979, the BPO features professional,
student and amateur musicians and is one of Boston's premier orchestras. Maestro
Zander’s intense belief in the transformative power of music along with his
warmth and welcoming spirit are why our audiences describe the Boston
Philharmonic as "passionate," "inspiring,"
"unique," and – perhaps our favorite descriptor –
"un-stuffy." We present
top-notch music in a manner that both music aficionados and the casual listener
can enjoy. We also have the newly launched and extremely successful Boston
Philharmonic Youth Orchestra that includes 115 talented musicians between the
ages of 12 and 21 who receive their musical training and Maestro Zander’s
leadership tuition free. And we are especially proud of our expansive outreach
program ‘Crescendo!’ that engages and
mentors students in the Boston public and charter schools throughout the year.
