Professional concerts can be prohibitively expensive, which is all the more reason to take advantage of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s free open house on Sunday, October 22, from noon – 5pm. On this momentous date (the 125th anniversary of the BSO’s first concert), Symphony Hall’s various stages will offer a performance of Schumann’s Symphony No. 2 (James Levine and the BSO), excerpts from 'Madame Butterfly' (Keith Lockhart and the Boston Lyric Opera), and a wide variety of classical, jazz, world, vocal, rock, and opera performances from members of the BSO and musicians from local conservatories and the wider Boston community.
