BCPS music students to play “Side by Side" with Baltimore Symphony Orchestra

Annual event with BSO to take place at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall

What: Before an audience of elementary, middle, and high school students, 38 high school musicians will perform alongside members of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra during the Baltimore County Public Schools' annual Side By Side concert. The students, all members of the county's high school honors band or orchestra, were selected through a highly competitive audition process. The program also features Alan Mao, a Grade 10 pianist from Towson High School, as a soloist. He will perform Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the Orchestra. Dr. Michael Repper will conduct. This is a ticketed event, and all tickets have already been reserved.

When: Thursday, Feb. 14, at 11 a.m.

Where: Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall
1212 Cathedral Street
Baltimore 21201

Prior to this performance, the BCPS students participated in sectional rehearsals led by Baltimore Symphony Orchestra musicians and rehearsed with the BSO conductor. They then come together for a rehearsal with the orchestra.

The students performing represent eight BCPS high schools: Catonsville, Dulaney, Eastern Tech, Franklin, Hereford, Loch Raven, Perry Hall, and Towson.
