BSO to Perform at APGFCU Arena at Harford Community College
28 June 2023
The world-renowned Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) will celebrate the originality and independence of America’s greatest composers at the APGFCU Arena at Harford Community College on Saturday, July 8, at 7:30 PM.
From the jazzy high life captured by George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein to the epic film scores of Aaron Copland and John Williams, the American sound is lively and limitless. Valerie Coleman’s anthem for essential workers and a new spin on patriotism by BSO Artistic Partner and hip-hop spoken word artist Wordsmith update the national tradition for the 21st century. Like the flag that once flew over Baltimore’s harbor and inspired “The Star-Spangled Banner,” this big and bold music is a declaration of freedom.
Music for Maryland Tour reservations are “Pay What You Wish” with a suggested donation of $10 per ticket. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit https://my.bsomusic.org/18646/18661.
The show is supported by the Maryland State Arts Council and the Harford County Cultural Arts Board.
