September Sessions

BPO September Sessions

The BPO welcomes in the 2020-21 concert season with September Sessions, a free 3-part video performance mini-fest!

Our September Sessions showcase solo and small ensemble performances in the acoustic splendor of Kleinhans Music Hall, while adhering to new social distancing and safety protocols. These intimate performances allow audiences a rare glimpse into the intricate musical conversations that exist between individual musicians while performing.

Our FREE gift to you, our cherished audience, for your overwhelming support these past several months, a new September Sessions video will be released each day September 11, 12 and 13, and will remain available on demand throughout the month of September. 

September Sessions serves as a prelude to our new BPOnDemand video streamed performance series for the fall and holiday season. Tickets on sale now!

We look forward to seeing you again in Kleinhans Music Hall very soon, we hope. Until then, please enjoy our September Sessions, curated and performed by our own BPO musicians. Be well!
