The summer performances begin on 10 June and feature a selection of popular classics from Tchaikovsky and Mozart to Hollywood favourites. Audiences will be able to hear the Orchestra in person at Lighthouse Poole, where a limited amount of seating will be available. Each concert will also be livestreamed and available for 30 days to view online.

Safety measures are in place to ensure that the concert hall is a secure environment: we’ll continue with 50% socially distanced seating plans across the summer, and there are measures in place at Lighthouse such as additional cleaning, staggered start times and ventilation.

The announcement of the summer concerts follows a successful year of livestreamed concerts, which reached new audiences and achieving greater than sell out capacity. In recognition of this the BSO’s livestreamed concerts were championed at the meeting of G7 ministers in April. We’re looking forward to welcoming audiences back while continuing to livestream concerts to audiences at home and across the world.

BSO Chief Executive, Dougie Scarfe, says, “We’re proud to be one of the few British orchestras to have continued livestreaming symphonic concerts during the past eight months. Being able to once again share our live music-making with a physical audience in the concert hall is something we have been looking forward to — and we can’t wait to see you!”
