Join us for our 41st season as Music Director John Thomas Dodson takes us through a series of exciting programs.

As the preeminent, regionally based, professional orchestra serving Oakland County all the way from Commerce Township to Troy and Bloomfield Hills to Southfield, the Birmingham Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra presents the very best of live music in Southeast Michigan. Connecting people to communities and music to experience, we are Music Where You Live.   more

Eternal Light

John Thomas Dodson, conductor
Christopher Wells, guest conductor

Zoltan Kodaly: Summer Evening

Morten Lauridsen: Lux Aeterna
Christ Church Cranbrook Choir
Christopher Wells, conductor

Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major, D. 485


You'll be dazzled by Lauridsen's splendid work, Lux aeterna in a joint performance by the BBSO and the Christ Church Cranbrook Choir under its new director Christopher Wells. The Kodaly is a wonderful bit of eastern European mystery while the Schubert 5 is one of the truly great works of the classical era, abounding in beautiful melodies.
