Community Partnerships

The Boston Festival Orchestra believes that live music performance experiences are essential to developing a healthy and community-driven society. The BFO engages in youth music education outreach services year-round in Greater Boston and aims to continue strengthening its collaborations with local nonprofits to fund a variety of community partnership projects.

Youth Music Education Programs


The BFO is currently working with students in Big Brothers, Big Sisters of Eastern Massachusetts' Mentor2.0 program.

Last year, the BFO piloted a music education workshop with children aged 3-5 through Horizons for Homeless Children.

Access Program

The Access Program is part of the Boston Festival Orchestra's commitments to equitability and accessibility. Through this program, local nonprofits are provided with free and heavily discounted tickets to BFO events to distribute amongst their communities. The BFO recognizes that different populations face unpredictable and varied circumstances, so we work directly with partners in the Access Program to best serve each individual community.

If you would like to learn more about our Access Program, please reach out to Nicholas!

  • a Sensory Friendly chamber music concert
