Don't Fix It

I hear the kids are all right

Holy smoke Rocky, there are two different BSO concerts this week! (Technically there was a concert last week, but I didn’t do a post on it because 1. I was busy and 2. How hard is it to figure out a Fourth of July concert? Tchaikovsky, Sousa, anthem, done.)

On Thursday, July 8 at 8 pm at Strathmore and Friday, July 9 at 7:30 pm at the Meyerhoff, it’s Planet Earth Live! Conducted by composer George Fenton and featuring mezzo-soprano Haley Glennie-Smith, the BSO will play the score from the same-named BBC miniseries while scenes of Earth and its animals are projected onto a giant screen. It promises to be a beautiful, beautiful thing, if this video is any indication:

Then on Saturday, July 10 at 7:30 pm at the Meyerhoff, it’s a program entitled “Rising Stars Perform Tchaikovsky Concertos” on account of because the violin and piano soloist are Sirena Huang and Conrad Tao, both fifteen years of age. They both look relatively acne-free in their headshots, the jerks. Also they will be playing Tchaikovsky concertos, if you can believe it.

So that’s your entertainment for the weekend. You’re welcome.


About Jenn

Despite being the former digital marketing intern at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Jenn German does not like Mozart. Beethoven could've totally beaten him up. Also she has an arts management graduate degree from American University, but this changes nothing.
