Blue Hill Meteorological Observatory, located at the top of a scenic mountain range south of Boston, is a unique American institution. Founded in 1885 by Abbott Lawrence Rotch as a private scientific center for the study and measurement of the atmosphere, it was the site of many pioneering weather experiments and discoveries. The earliest kite soundings of the atmosphere in North America in the 1890s and the development of the radiosonde in the 1930s occurred at this historic site.
Celebrating their 65th season, the Quincy Symphony Orchestra offers free admission to this performance of VIGNIERI Ballet Tympana, MOZART Bassoon Concerto featuring BSO principal bassoon Richard Svoboda and DVORAK Symphony No. 8.
The hall opens to allow seating approximately 30 minutes prior to the scheduled performance time. Please note that the dates and times of all concerts, as well as the program details, are subject to change.
