Adams Gallery Celebrates BSO's 125th Season


The Boston Symphony Orchestra is a cultural institution that inspires pride in Bostonians and enjoys a fine reputation worldwide.

BSO Celebrates 125 Years tells the story of the orchestra from the time of its founding in 1881 by Bostonian Henry Lee Higginson, who long had dreamed of having a premiere orchestra in his hometown. It follows the careers of a series of influential conductors and music directors, along with the new work they premiered. The exhibit also takes a close look at the magnificent and acoustically outstanding Symphony Hall, the orchestra's home since 1900.

BSO Celebrates 125 Years will run March 6, 2006, through June 30, 2006 at the Adams Gallery.
