About the Performance
Teachers, parents, and students: the BSO is taking a virtual fieldtrip, bringing music and activities to you through BSO OffStage! Arts-integrated, interactive, and engaging, Midweek Concerts: BGE Broadcasts call on the BSO’s new high definition cameras to bring our longest running and widest reaching educational series to life digitally. The first program of four features the string section performing works by Mendelssohn, Jessie Montgomery, and Bartók conducted by Associate Conductor Nicholas Hersh and Assistant Conductor Jonathan Rush. Midweek Concerts: BGE Broadcasts are primarily designed for students in the elementary grades but are appropriate for all ages.

This Early Listener’s Guide, written by a highly-skilled team of Maryland educators with specialties in music, drama, science, English/Language Arts and visual arts, is designed to inspire creative interactions with the concert material and to provide a more personal and engaging concert experience and encourage post-concert discussion.
