If you are a teacher or school administrator looking for a field trip opportunity or if you coordinate outings for seniors in retirement communities, or adults and children visiting Boston as part of a tour, consider the Boston Philharmonic! Each season, hundreds of school-aged students and adults attend Boston Philharmonic concerts. It's a great opportunity for students to enhance their knowledge about classical music in a true concert setting and a chance for people of all ages to hear Boston's finest musicians at a significant discount over individual ticket prices. Group minimum: 10 people.

Here's what some schools and students have said:

“This was my first time at an orchestral event. I did not know what to expect going in, but I was blown away by how amazing the orchestra was. It was an amazing experience that I wouldn’t trade for anything.”
—Matthew, Middlesex School

“Mr. Zander’s exuberance in his explanations of each piece brought the entire experience alive.”
–Michael, Middlesex School

“What a great educational opportunity, to be able to have Ben bring the music to life first with his explanations, then with his and the orchestra’s moving performances.”
—Mark Kross, Music Teacher, Middlesex School

"I really enjoyed listening to the violins play. It was my first time listening to Classical music. The Bartok was very moving and I can tell that they spent hours working on it. I myself will try and practice more."
—Maya, John F. Kennedy School, Somerville
