Bangor Symphony Orchestra

The Bangor Symphony Orchestra (BSO), founded in 1896, is pledged to provide Maine people with powerful, enriching, and diverse musical experiences through live concert performances and education programs of the highest quality. To accomplish these goals, the BSO annually presents five classical concerts, a Nutcracker collaboration with a local ballet company, a pops concert, educational outreach programs to K-12 schools, the BSO High School Concerto Competition, and youth concerts (serving thousands of students from across Maine).
