What is appropriate concert dress?

Most patrons are dressed in business or business casual attire, but there is no specific dress code. Please wear something comfortable so that you can enjoy the concert!

I'm interested in learning more about a certain work. Can you give me details?
BSOmusic.org includes program notes and often audio clips for all concerts that the BSO performs throughout a season. Notes are linked through the particular program's page, easily accessible through the Season Calendar.
Unfortunately, due to the volume of inquiries, we are unable to make recording or listening recommendations, nor are we able to answer questions regarding works that the BSO is not performing in the current season; we suggest Googling for program notes and additional information.
Where can I eat before my performance?
Before concerts and during intermission at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, the BSO serves light refreshments such as cakes, cheese plates, sandwiches, soda, beer and wine. There are also numerous restaurants around Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The Music Center at Strathmore offers convenient on-site dining courtesy of Restaurant Associates.

If I am running late for my concert, will I be seated?
Delays happen and the BSO ushers do their very best to get you to your seat to enjoy your concert. While we never seat during a movement, we frequently seat between movements or between pieces. Late seating is determined on concert-by-concert basis, and is at the discretion of the BSO, in consultation with the conductor and any guest artists who may be performing.
