All dates, repertoire, venues, and artists subject to change without notice.

** Please note that all BPO performances on Thursday evening will be part of our Discovery Series. The traditional pre-concert lecture, which we call our Guide to the Music, will be interspersed throughout the performance.

*** Please note that all BPO performances in Saturday or Sunday will feature our traditional pre-concert lecture (called the Guide to the Music) approx. 1 hour and 15 minutes in advance of the performance. For Saturday evening concerts, this means that our pre-concert lecture will take place at 6:45pm. For Sunday afternoon concerts, this means that our pre-concert lecture will take place at 1:45pm. All lectures are held in the concert venue unless otherwise noted.

**** There will be no Guide to the Music prior to our BPYO performances though Maestro Zander often speaks for a few moments at the top of each of performance.
