We at the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops appreciate how difficult and strange this new world is for you. Many of our Arts and Entertainment journalist friends are now covering Covid-19 stories, while others are trying to find stories to cover — when there are no live performances.

We can help. Each week we are going to send out a brief listing of what we are doing in our BSO at Home and Boston Pops at Home online video series, and beginning July 1, our Tanglewood 2020 Online Festival.  These videos contain interesting and compelling stories that show musicians continuing to perform from home, artists doing their part during this pandemic and how music can help get us through this difficult time – we also highlight some fun and creative ways to take a break from the crisis.  All this content can be found at: bso.org/athome,bostonpops.org/athome and beginning July 1, tanglewood.org.

It’s definitely working; traffic on our website has increase 124% since we launched March 23 and we have had more than 6 million interactions on our website and social media pages combined.

So, beginning this Wednesday (due to the holiday) and on Mondays after that, look for our email highlighting what we have coming up that week in our ongoing series BSO at HomeBoston Pops at Home and starting July 3, our Tanglewood 2020 Online Festival.  We will be sure to highlight our major projects that might be of interest to you for coverage.

If you need a story – take a look. Even if you don’t need a story – take a look, we hope you will see something you like.

Many thanks,

The BSO Press Office
