Symphony in the City banner


The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra presents Symphony in the City, a series of free concerts that brings the BSO out of the concert hall and into community locations throughout Baltimore City during the 2019-20 season. Made possible by PNC, the programs will include works by Beethoven as part of the BSO’s Beethoven 2020 celebration, which recognizes and honors the composer’s 250th birthday.

The Baltimore Museum of Industry, New Psalmist Baptist Church, the Murphy Fine Arts Center at Morgan State University and the Baltimore City Department of Recreation & Parks are supporting partners for these events.
