Music Director Marin Alsop leads the BSO, the Bethel AME Church Choir, BSYO and the BSO OrchKids in a free concert in recognition and admiration of the spirit of the citizens of Baltimore. Central to the concert is New Morning for the World by Joseph Schwantner, the narration comprised of public speeches by Dr. Martin Luther King that spanned more than a decade of his life. “In a world and country that can sometimes seem so divided," says Alsop, "the BSO strives to bring our neighbors together through our common language — music."
Please Note: This is a free concert. Tickets will not be issued for this performance and seating is first come, first served. Early arrival is strongly encouraged. The concert will take place on 1300 Druid Hill Road, Baltimore, MD 21217.
