Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
Adage Technologies, a leading website and application development firm, announced today the release of a new mobile website for patrons of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble currently in its 132nd season. The revamped website can be found at http://www.bso.org.
As the country’s most visited orchestral website, Adage set out to offer a better user experience for those accessing the site through mobile devices. The new site now allows users to enjoy many of the same features they do on the desktop site, including ticketing options, a media center complete with a watch and listen area, donations and more.
In addition, Adage’s project included updates to the Orchestra’s desktop website, most notably the addition of a print-at-home option for quick retrieval of tickets on show nights. Customers also have the ability to access their account from their mobile phones, send tickets to a friend via e-mail or even pull up their ticket’s barcode and have it scanned upon entrance.
“We were very excited to help provide customers with mobile access to such an esteemed and talented organization,” Roy Chomko, president of Adage Technologies, said. “Vistors should be particularly happy with the improved ability to purchase tickets, print them at home or just use their mobile device at the door.
Finally, Adage was also able to successfully update the site to Version 11 of the Tessitura software. Version 11 of this software includes a new dashboard system that provides a real-time customized reporting feature.
“The new mobile website and ticketing options should make it even easier for our fans to learn about and attend our many award-winning shows,” Rich Bradway, Associate Director of e-Commerce and New Media at the Boston Symphony Orchestra, said. “We are constantly looking for new ways to reach our audience and this is the perfect example of how new technology can help us do that.”

About Boston Symphony Orchestra
Now in its 132nd season, the Boston Symphony Orchestra gave its inaugural concert on October 22, 1881, and has continued to uphold the vision of its founder, the businessman, philanthropist, Civil War veteran, and amateur musician Henry Lee Higginson, for well over a century. The Boston Symphony Orchestra has performed throughout the United States, as well as in Europe, Japan, Hong Kong, South America, and China; in addition, it reaches audiences numbering in the millions through its performances on radio, television, and recordings. It plays an active role in commissioning new works from today’s most important composers; its summer season at Tanglewood is regarded as one of the world’s most important music festivals; it helps develop the audience of the future through BSO Youth Concerts and through a variety of outreach programs involving the entire Boston community; and, during the Tanglewood season, it sponsors the Tanglewood Music Center, one of the world’s most important training grounds for young composers, conductors, instrumentalists, and vocalists. The orchestra’s virtuosity is reflected in the concert and recording activities of the Boston Symphony Chamber Players, one of the world’s most distinguished chamber ensembles made up of a major symphony orchestra’s principal players, and the activities of the Boston Pops Orchestra have established an international standard for the performance of lighter kinds of music. Overall, the mission of the Boston Symphony Orchestra is to foster and maintain an organization dedicated to the making of music consonant with the highest aspirations of musical art, creating performances and providing educational and training programs at the highest level of excellence. This is accomplished with the continued support of its audiences, governmental assistance on both the federal and local levels, and through the generosity of many foundations, businesses, and individuals. Today the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Inc. presents more than 250 concerts annually. It is an ensemble that has richly fulfilled Henry Lee Higginson’s vision of a great and permanent orchestra in Boston.
