Thanks to gift from the late Harvard Professor Arthur Maass, undergraduate students at Harvard can receive free tickets to selected performances by the BSO. Professor Maass was a long-time subscriber and patron of the BSO with his membership beginning in 1946. Upon his passing, a provision in his estate plans dictated that funds were to be made available to supply tickets to Harvard undergraduates.
