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:
- Jeremiah Quijote – 1st Clarinet
- Jessica Zhao – 1st Violin
- Porscha Silva – Viola
Old Mill High
- Katherine Smolen – 1st Violin
