The BSO has relied on the assistance of volunteers for decades, but in 1984, a group of loyal and dedicated supporters of the BSO and Tanglewood first joined forces to ensure that all aspects of the BSO's many educational, service, and fundraising initiatives were top-notch. The Boston Symphony Association of Volunteers (BSAV) currently offers a broad spectrum of programs and activities that members may participate in depending on their areas of interest.

Volunteers may choose to lead tours of historic Symphony Hall or the Tanglewood grounds, participate in special fundraising events, help patrons in the Symphony Shop or Glass House, assist children as they discover the wonders of classical music at youth concerts and the ever-popular instrument playground.
