I spent most of yesterday afternoon doing viral promotion (in other words, sending out random emails to groups that seem like they might be interested) for the BSO’s Forte program, and it occurred to me that I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned it on the blog. I could be wrong about that, but I’m sure I’ve never delved into detail, so how about an overview?
Forte: BSO Friends Under Forty is… uh, a program for concert goers under forty. Specifically they are referred to as “young professionals” under forty, but regardless of how you think of yourself, if you’re under forty you’re in.
The program starts with ticket discounts to certain concerts, after which there’s a party. You know, food, drink specials, door prizes, hanging with BSO musicians, the usual. Much like college night, really, only you don’t have to be a student. The food, therefore, is generally pretty awesome. Just saying.

The next Forte concert is the Holiday Spectacular on December 18th, and if you ask me, nothing says “young professional” like tap-dancing Santas. True story.
