BSO Pulse is back for the fourth season — bringing together the worlds of classical music and indie artists onto one stage! Each concert crosses genres, opening with a classical performance by members of the BSO, a set from our featured artist and culminating with a unique collaboration between the two groups. 

D.C. native Kelela embodies contemporary R&B, blending jazz influences and progressive electronic music to create an entirely new sound. With collaborations that include Solange and The Gorillaz under her belt and praise from The New York Times and Pitchfork (Best New Music), Kelela is an artist you will not want to miss.

Every show kicks off with a pre-concert party with live music, happy hour drink specials and food from our favorite Baltimore spots.
