The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is turning 100 this February, and they are bringing back famed American violinist, Joshua Bell, to help them celebrate. Bell, alongside conductor Marin Alsop, will be performing sections from Gershwin, Bernstein and many more at their centennial anniversary concert. Electronica composer Mason Bates will also perform his signature piece, Mothership.

The official Baltimore Symphony Orchestra website is inviting music lovers to join them for their 100th Anniversary event:

“Make history with Maestra Marin Alsop and the incredible artists of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra as we celebrate a milestone birthday! You’ll enjoy the timeless music of Gershwin, a suite from Bernstein’s West Side Story with superstar violinist Joshua Bell and Mothership, a work by composer Mason Bates. Celebrity guests including Wes Moore will recount the BSO’s storied history and offer a glimpse into our future. The evening’s crescendo culminates in Ravel’s rousing Boléro followed by a champagne toast.”

Again, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra celebrates turning 100 on Saturday, February 11. Check out the official Baltimore Symphony Orchestra website for ticket information.
