Local Students to Perform With Baltimore Symphony

During a special concert on Thursday, highly talented students will get to experience the chance of a lifetime while learning from some of the world's best musicians.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) will perform alongside several local high school musicians in a special "side-by-side" concert Thursday.

Musicians from Arundel, Meade and Old Mill high schools are among the 29 from the county selected to play with the orchestra and receive special instruction. 

“This Side-by-Side experience is a real-life experience unlike any other that can be provided to young musicians. To a person, they cite the BSO Side-by-Side experience as the highlight of their high school musical years,” said Amy Cohn, AACPS’ coordinator of music, in a press release.

The concert is open to musicians and students only, so no tickets are available, said AACPS spokesman Bob Mosier.

The local musicians include: 

Arundel High

  • Jeremiah Quijote – 1st Clarinet

Meade High

  • Jessica Zhao – 1st Violin
  • Porscha Silva – Viola

Old Mill High

  • Katherine Smolen – 1st Violin
