Thank You to the Frontline Workers of Baltimore
Presented by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
August 20, 2020 – The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) today released a video in support of the heroic work of Baltimore’s frontline workers. Created in collaboration with Baltimore personalities including Chef Duff Goldman, Orioles Infielder Hanser Alberto, actor André De Shields, artist Amy Sherald, Chef Cindy Wolf and BSO Music Director Marin Alsop, the video includes an excerpt of Holst’s “Jupiter” from The Planets performed virtually by the BSO.
Known for its heroic melody, “Jupiter” is the BSO’s standing ovation to essential workers, who continue to support our community during the pandemic. The music was performed and recorded by BSO musicians from their homes and edited by BSO Audio Engineer Chuck LaMar and Rob Brubaker.
