Naturally, everything this week is patriotic. As it should be! Myself, I’m proud to be an American; I’m just ashamed of American cheese.
- The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra skips off to Oregon Ridge for their annual Star-Spangled Spectacular. No program listed on the web site, but I’m sure no cannons will be injured in the performance. July 3 & 4. [ See it! ]
- Meanwhile, the National Symphony Orchestra scurries over to the west lawn of the Capitol building to take part in A Capitol Fourth, which I refuse to watch until they bring back Barry Bostwick as host. Those were the BEST DAYS, guys! Duplicate the best days! Anyway, John Williams is going to conduct something, as well as, in an interesting twist, the BSO Pops conductor Jack Everly. Huh. Go figure. Plus a bunch of pop stars or something… guys, I don’t know who are lot of these people are, in either chronological direction. I’m getting old/young. You can also watch this one live on PBS, of course. July 4. [ See it! ]
- This week at Strathmore: Free summer outdoor concerts continue! [ See the calendar! ]
If you’d like your concert included in next week’s roundup, leave a comment or drop me a line.
