Taking place every Tuesday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, Osher participants will have the opportunity to hear and learn from BSO staff and musicians on the unique experience of being in an orchestra.

Behind the Scenes at the BSO

Ever wonder what it takes to put musicians on stage in front of thousands of people as they play masterworks by Beethoven or Shostakovich time and time again? Here’s your chance. Join staff and musicians from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as they lead you through an in-depth exploration of what it takes to make an orchestra run.

The course features classes by Carol Bogash, Vice President of Education and Community Engagement; Mary Plaine, Principal Librarian of the BSO; and select musicians of the BSO. Participants also gain exclusive access to a rehearsal of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 12. Culminating in a performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor” with Yefim Bronfman on Sunday, May 4, this course will open your eyes to the nuts and bolts that make symphony magic happen!
