The 2012-2013 season of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra marks the 96th year of the organization.
BSO and music director Marin Alsop invite music fans to experience the energy of the film score and the art of the cinema this season at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The orchestra’s performances will feature Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times and the epic masterpiece Alexander Nevsky, with original music score. The orchestra will also perform the music of West Side Story, where symphony lovers can hear the deep connection between music and film in the timeless tale of rivalry and forbidden love. Local legend John Waters joins the BSO to narrate Hair Spray in concert, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of the original film. The BSO will also perform “Bond and Beyond” a tribute to more than 50 years of 007.
In addition, the BSO will take a patriotic tour of America by celebrating its landscape and its people as sources of inspiration as seen through the lens of photographer Ansel Adams, set to music by composers Dave and Chris Brubeck. The orchestra will also celebrate America by performing symphonies from American composers Copland, Bernstein, and Christopher Rouse. Superstar pianists, violinists, and sopranos will be performing at the BSO for the 2012-2013 season, adding to what looks to be a promising and epic-inspired one for the company.
