ABOUT THE BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA IN CONCERT

On Oct. 6, 1951, WGBH Radio signed onto the air for the first time, broadcasting a Boston Symphony Orchestra concert live from Symphony Hall.  The tradition continues as WCRB and the BSO bring you concert performances available on demand, available in most cases for one year following each concert.  For more about our broadcast schedule, features and interviews, and 24/7 access to great performances by the BSO, visit the BSO Concert Channel.
