BSO Sets New Stage for Season Opener

When the Boston Symphony Orchestra opens its new season tonight, the concert will present a moment of truth for its home, Symphony Hall. Built 105 yearsago, the concert hall is long famous for its pristine sound and still represents a gold standard for acoustic design in this country and the world.

The landmark building has been updated over the years but the original stage floor has never been replaced...until now. WBUR's Andrea Shea has more on this historic renovation.

Tune into Morning Edition on Friday to hear this report.
