On the heels of the 200th birthday of our national anthem, join us for a special Gala concert showcasing quintessential American music, artists and Maryland’s musical roots. Copland’s Lincoln Portrait and Old American Songs are brought to life through narration by Center Stage’s visionary Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah and the soaring harmonies of the Morgan State University Choir, Grofe’s Ode to the Star-Spangled Banner will be brought back to the stage for the first performance in 80 years. The evening wouldn’t be complete without a performance of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and a special appearance by the BSO OrchKids and the Baltimore Symphony Youth Orchestra!
