The infobox for the orchestra is, in my view, just about completely useless. "Associated acts"? What on earth would they be for an orchestra, even though those listed would qualify in this specific case? And are the only members of the orchestra those listed here? Of course not. That template was designed for pop performers; the consensus at the classical music project here in WP-land has been to remove these boxes. I will do so unless there is a huge outcry within the next day or two. --Wspencer11 (talk to me...) 23:20, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Erich Leinsdorf and President Kennedy Assassination[edit]

Would it be inappropriate to include a copy of the audio clip from November 22, 1963 where conductor Erich Leinsdorf announces to the audience that President Kennedy has been assassinated. I feel that this is a significant event in the history of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. TheGoofyGolfer (talk) 17:30, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
