Concert Roundup of Zelda

In the summer, no one wants to hold their concerts in their own darned concert halls, apparently.

  • The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra embraces the free and easy ways of summer and goes full-on pop-rock to close out the summer season this weekend. On July 26, the BSO tackles the music of Michael Jackson; on July 27, they’re joined by a rock band to pay tribute to Led Zeppelin. Both concerts will be performed at their Pier Six venue. [ See MJ! ] [ See LZ! ]
  • Meanwhile, the National Symphony Orchestra hightails it over to Wolf Trap for their own light and fun concert. Guess what they’re playing on July 26! Guess! They’re playing the music of the video game series Legend of Zelda! Awesome. [ See it! ]
  • Or! The NSO also has a couple more classically-minded concerts up its sleeve, both also at Wolf Trap. First, on July 27, they’ll play Holst‘s The Planets accompanied by HD film of a recent NASA exploration of the solar system. And if that’s not serious enough for you, on July 28 they’ll do a straight-ahead performance of – wait for it – Beethoven’s ninth symphony. Well I dare say. Also Bruch‘s Scottish Fantasy, but whatever; BEETHOVEN! [ See The Planets! ] [ See BEETHOVEN’S NINTH! ]
  • This week at Strathmore: a free outdoor concert tonight, a bilingual band for kids tomorrow. [ 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.
