Concert Roundup: Ascension

I can’t help but feel that my titles for these posts are rapidly losing touch with any kind of reality. Is there even a movie sequel subtitled “The Ascension”? Is the collective consciousness leading me on? Someone help! Or, y’know, attend a concert. Whichever.

  • The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra goes super duper classical this week. Bach! Rameau! Haydn! Mozart! Doesn’t get much more solid than that. February 2 at Strathmore. February 4 at the Meyerhoff. [ See it! ]
  • The National Symphony Orchestra takes a similar approach: Strauss! Beethoven! Beethoven’s Eroica, for crying out loud! February 2 – 4. [ See it! ]
  • Strathmore offers so many concerts every week that I’m afraid I don’t get paid enough to cover them all here (blogging nets me $0/hr, which is pretty crappy until you consider that I get a 100% raise every year). I do want to call out highlights, however, especially those I’ll be attending personally. Inaugural highlight: Strathmore’s Discover Duke Ellington festival kicks off February 3 — three weeks of Duke Ellington concerts and lectures. [ Check it out! ]

If you’d like me to include your upcoming concert in next week’s roundup, leave a comment or drop me a line.

EDITED TO ADD: Hey students! Benevolent Dictator Jamie just sent me the following exciting news.

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.
