BMOP returns to the concert stage in style, with a special concert event to kick off celebrations of a quarter-century of BMOP. Pulling Out All the Stops, BMOP’s first live concert since 2020, showcases the power and glory of the Symphony Hall organ as it is seldom presented: as a vital element of contemporary expression. World-renowned organ soloist Paul Jacobs joins the BMOP orchestra for an evening of 20th-century organ masterpieces and iconic organ solos reimagined for orchestra.

BMOP is proud to offer free general admission to this concert; seats can be reserved through the Symphony Hall Box Office.
