Midweek Concert: The Remarkable Farkle McBride

Midweek Concert

***In spite of the past events, we are excited to confirm that Thursday’s 10 am Midweek concert will proceed as scheduled. We realize that a number of students will not be able to attend, but invite those who can to please come. We hope that for those who can attend, this will be a well-needed moment of music. Please note that the 11:30 performance has been cancelled.

As we anticipate many will not be able to attend, we are delighted that we will offering a very special opportunity to those schools who were schedule to attend either Tuesday’s or Thursday’s performances. For the first time, the BSO will be piloting a live-stream of these concerts, which will also be available after the concerts conclude. This will be made available via a private, password-protected link on Ustream. We hope to send this link and password through on Wednesday evening in preparation for Thursday’s concert. Please do note that this is very much a pilot for us, so we apologize in advance if there are any technical issues.

As always, for any questions please call the Education Department (410) 783-8118 or***
