A 40th Anniversary of the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall Season Opening Celebration

Recently, the BSO honored the 40th Anniversary of the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall with a night of music and much more.

The celebratory Gala event was led by Principal Pops Conductor Jack Everly, who concludes his tenure with the BSO this season. Grammy-winning soul and jazz vocalist Ledisi headlined the evening with a unique take on the music of legendary singer, songwriter, and activist, Nina Simone. Associate Conductor, Jonathan Rush led the Orchestra and young performers from BSYO and OrchKids. It was a night of storytelling of the past, present, and future of the BSO.

The party continued after the performance with a fresh approach to a post-concert celebration. The lobby was filled with joy as guests danced to a DJ, captured memories with a roaming photo booth, and enjoyed incredible complimentary desserts and drinks.

Contributions fuel our operations, and the Gala sets the tone of our fundraising efforts for the season. It is not too early to mark your calendars for a very special Gala weekend coming September 22-24, 2023. It is also not too late to share your support this season!
