BSO Pulse
BSO Pulse Season 2

BSO Pulse brings together the worlds of classical music and indie rock onto one stage. Each concert begins with a BSO performance, followed with a set by the headliner artist, and culminates with both groups performing on stage together. Between sets, BSO Associate Conductor Nicholas Hersh and WTMD morning host Alex Cortright talk about the meaning behind the music, bringing the artists into the conversation to reveal insights and to draw parallels across genres. Each BSO Pulse event kicks off with a pre-concert party in the lobby of the Meyerhoff featuring live music, happy hour drink specials, and food from our favorite Baltimore restaurants and breweries.
