Barbara Bozzuto, Chair of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Board of Directors, and Peter Kjome, President and CEO of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, talked to the Greater Baltimore Committee’s Board of Directors at its December 8, 2017 meeting about the symphony’s trip to the United Kingdom and Ireland in August 2018 to perform at some of the most prestigious venues in the world.
The symphony has been invited to perform internationally, which serves as recognition of the BSO for its demonstrated excellence among major American symphony orchestras.
The BSO will perform in Edinburgh, Scotland, followed by performances in London, England and Dublin, Ireland at these highly-touted international music engagements.
The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and leaders from Greater Baltimore and Maryland will have the opportunity to reach concertgoers in the venues of these cities and also extend their reach beyond the concert halls as ambassadors of the community through national broadcasts of the concerts in the countries where the concerts are being performed along with corporate and other events that will take place during the tour.
The BSO seeks private corporate support for this tour through the GBC membership. The BSO will work with GBC’s membership to craft unique and once-in-a-lifetime experiences through the tour both in Baltimore and in the cities where they will be performing. This presents a unique and exciting opportunity for businesses that have interests in the international community to partner with the BSO and demonstrate a side of Baltimore that other regions may not have had the opportunity to enjoy. Initial lead support from the Maryland Department of Commerce, the Bozzuto Group and several additional Baltimore and Maryland corporations has launched this effort. The BSO hopes others will choose to support the BSO and promote this world-class community with this endeavor.
