The Compleat Concert Roundup

The summer seasons now begin! And so far they look exactly like summer seasons usually do: full of light fun… and John Williams. Seriously, he was here last week too; what’s the deal?

  • Maybe you don’t like pop classical. That’s fair. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has you covered with a concert featuring EVERY SINGLE ONE of Bach‘s Brandburg concerti. All of them. Okay, that’s six – try to remember next time, okay? July 13 at the Meyerhoff. [ See it! ]
  • Or if you DO like classical pop, the BSO also offers Star Wars and Beyond! The Star Wars is John Williams; the Beyond is a bunch of other blockbuster movie scores. July 14 at Oregon Ridge. [ See it! ]
  • The National Symphony Orchestra toes the classical-classical pop line with a night of Gershwin standards like Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris conducted by Marvin Hamlisch. July 13 at Wolf Trap. [ See it! ]
  • Or if you’d rather, the NSO also offers a recreation of the classical movie The Wizard of Oz, with the orchestra playing the full score live along to the original movie. July 14 at Wolf Trap. [ See it! ]
  • This week at Strathmore: a free outdoor concert tonight, a cappella for kids tomorrow, a cappella for everybody Saturday with Afro Blue Vocal Band. [ See the calendar! ]

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.
