The Soldier's Tale


"No one can have it all, that is forbidden. You must learn to choose between."


The BBSO gave a one-of-a-kind performance at Planterra recently on March 20. It's true, no one can have it all and you must learn to choose between - BBSO performed to a sold-out crowd.

As we turn 40, the BBSO maintains that quality is not an option—it is an outright expectation. Serving our community with beautiful live music in many of the most revered venues in Oakland County, we are excited to present the second half of our 2014–2015 season.

Don’t miss a beat as Music Director John Thomas Dodson unites our professional orchestra at every concert and shares the stage with world class soloists! Still to come for this 40th anniversary season is The Soldier's Tale on March 18 & 20 and A Burst of Colors with principal violinist Kurt Nikkanen from the New York City Ballet on April 29 & May 1.
