BSO Autumn Season 2020

  • Show Information

The BSO is proud to present a programme of 12 concerts this autumn marking the return to live performance by the BSO following the national lockdown necessitated by the Coronavirus pandemic. It will be a truly special moment when Kirill comes on stage to conduct his BSO after the longest period of silence in its 127 year history and we hope that you will all want to join us as we once again bring the live musical experience to our audiences. The BSO has worked tirelessly to ensure the safe return of our musicians and guest artists to ensure we comply with government guidance on social distancing for orchestras. All the concerts this autumn will be available to watch from home via digital video livestream.

Whilst our concerts will be slightly shorter than usual and presented without an interval, in planning our programmes our priority is to maintain the integrity of a full BSO season, bringing you great music, great artists and of course, your great Orchestra. Pre-concert talks videos, given by Andrew Burn, will also be available to watch before each concert, giving valuable insights into the music being performed, and pdf concert programmes will also be downloadable.

Digital tickets are available to book online now. Each concert costs only £6 in order to access the livestream page. Alternatively you can purchase a digital subscription package which will give you access to all 12 concerts AND free access to the pre-concert talk videos and free concert programmes. By doing so, not only will you be getting ring side seats to the concerts from the comfort of your own home wherever you live, but you will also be continuing to support the BSO during these ongoing uncertain times.

All concerts will be livestreamed direct from our home at Lighthouse, Poole via the BSO website at 7.30pm. As a digital ticket holder you will have automatic access to the premium page specific for each concert when you log in to your BSO account. Full details will be sent in due course and you will receive a reminder email, together with viewing link, each Monday. And if you cannot watch live for any reason, all performances will be available to view on demand for 30 days after each livestream.
