LIVE Virtual Governing Members Lounge
Thursday, June 4 at 5 pm

Thank you for your support of the BSO’s Virtual Governing Member's Lounge. In an effort to encourage time for reflection, we are postponing our originally scheduled program with Maestro Jack Everly and Baltimore Choral Arts Society's Anthony Blake Clark.

Tonight, to help encourage that reflection, we are sharing a powerful - and still timely - speech, given by the late Congressman Elijah Cummings at the 2016 League of American Orchestras Conference hosted by the BSO in Baltimore.

We look forward to a return to the Lounge next week at our regularly scheduled time for a celebration of four members of the Orchestra on the event of their retirement.
