Oct 16, 2020 Update

Symphony Hall will be closed to audiences through May 2021. Given this and the ongoing health directives from the Governor’s and Mayor’s offices, H+H is moving the rest of its season online. We look forward to resuming live, in-person performances as soon as it is permissible to do so. Learn more here.

Until then, H+H plans an active schedule of performances you can enjoy at home. Click here to learn more about all our streaming concerts.
