Earlier this month, we launched BSO Sessions, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s digital concert series. BSO Sessions shares powerful music and real stories with audiences, reimagining how we fulfill our community’s need for inspirational music and artistic leadership. We are excited to announce that we are going “all in” with BSO Sessions! In addition to the first three episodes currently available, 27 new installments of the series will be released through June 2021.

In extending BSO Sessions, we have also come to the important and necessary decision to extend subscription concert cancellations at The Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and The Music Center at Strathmore through June 19, 2021. We remain committed to bringing our audiences together but our priority must remain the health and safety of our audiences, artists, and orchestra amid the current realities of COVID-19.
