    Streaming On-Demand February 4th - March 6th

    Heroes come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life. From fictional superheroes like Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens to everyday heroes working on the front lines and brave historical figures like Rosa Parks, these individuals are often overshadowed or forgotten, but they make an impact on our future. This program features works by Daniel Bernard Roumain and James P. Johnson, and Wordsmith shares a fresh commentary on Rosa Parks and how she changed history.

  • BSO on the Go

    BSO on the Go

    BSO on the Go places selected BSO musicians into the county's elementary schools (including Title I schools). In contrast to a passive auditorium concert, these interactive programs take place in a more intimate classroom setting that encourages students and musicians to engage one another. In addition, at selected secondary schools, there are opportunities for student orchestras to perform with BSO soloists at public in-school concerts. BSO on the GO has received widespread acclaim from participating children as well as their music educators.

    For further information and to schedule a visit at your school, please contact Richard Spero at 301.581.5212 or BSOgo@BSOmusic.org.

    Note: Due to COVID-19, BSO on the Go is being offered virtually.
