CANCELLED - Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
Mahler Symphony No. 3
The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is cancelling all concerts and other public events through Saturday, March 21, 2020 at The Music Center at Strathmore. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has been closely monitoring the recent outbreak of COVID-19. Given the seriousness of this evolving situation and concern for the health and well-being of our audiences, musicians and staff, the organization has cancelled these public events as the best course of action for our local and global community, as the institution does its part to minimize the spread of this virus.
BSO President and CEO Peter Kjome stated, “We are committed to the safety of our patrons, musicians and staff, and we believe that it is our responsibility to make this difficult decision at this time. Of course, as recent history has shown us, the BSO has navigated challenging times thanks to the collective support and strength of our community. In addition to inviting patrons to exchange into future programs, we are also deeply appreciative to those patrons who would consider donating their tickets to support the BSO at a pivotal time in our transformation.” The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will continue to monitor the landscape and make future decisions in consultation with Board leadership.
Mahler’s Third Symphony is the heart of his symphonic output. In six movements, it looks at the totality of the natural world, beginning with plants and animals, rising to humans and culminating in the divine. Its last movement, which Mahler named, “What love tells me,” is a magnificent arc of melody, as beautiful as anything he wrote.
