The BSO celebrates two of Baltimore’s most celebrated native sons, composers Frank Zappa and Philip Glass. From his early work with the Mothers of Invention to his classical, rock, jazz and electronic compositions, Zappa is revered for the complexity and versatility of his music. Hear his own great orchestral versions of classics such as “Be-Bop Tango” and “Dupree’s Paradise”. Marin Alsop and the BSO also perform Philip Glass’
Heroes Symphony based on the David Bowie classic ‘70s album, and introduce Baltimore beatboxer, Shodekeh, in a unique collaboration of vocal drumming pyrotechnics with orchestra.
