Teacher Guides for Midweek Concerts

The BSO provides arts-integrated, STEAM activated Teacher Resource guides to complement the Midweek concerts. Each guide is written by a highly skilled group of Maryland educators with specialism in music, drama, science, English/Language Arts and visual arts, led by extraordinary award-winning curriculum writer and editor, Richard McCready. The activities are designed to inspire creative interactions with the concert materials and to provide a more personal and more deeply engaging concert experience for students.

2016-2017 Midweek Concert Teacher Guides are coming soon!
