Bostonians display a similar devotion to the Boston Symphony Orchestra as they do to their beloved Red Sox. One of the finest orchestras in the world, the BSO presents some 30 programs each season (September through early May) in the elegant Symphony Hall, which has some of the world's best acoustics. Tickets to sit in on rehearsals for sold-out performances are available online, at the box office, and by phone; it's open seating, and every man for himself, however, so look out for the little old ladies with walkers. During the summer, the symphony decamps to Tanglewood, its home in the Berkshires. In spring and early summer, the Pops presents more contemporary, popular tunes both at Symphony Hall and at the outdoor Hatch Shell on the Esplanade along the river in Back Bay. The Fourth of July program is a Boston (and American) tradition.—updated by Jon Marcus
