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 three world class soloists—cellist Yannis Tsitselikis from Greece, organist Jeffrey Smith from London, and principal violinist Kurt Nikkanen from the New York City Ballet.
