Teacher Guides for Midweek Concerts

The BSO, in collaboration with Arts Education Maryland Schools Alliance (AEMS), provides tailor-made teacher resources for each Midweek Concert program. These powerful resources enable teachers to provide a deeper learning opportunity for students, linking each concert to essential curriculum subjects.

Free digital cd's available for each Midweek Concert. Please contact the BSO Education Dept. at education@bsomusic.org to receive the link for these resources. Teachers' Guides Digital CDs are provided with generous support from the Baltimore Symphony Associates. Through active listening prior to the concert, students will discover their own magical relationship to this music and create a meaningful and relevant connection to the concert experience.
