The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will welcome world-renowned Israeli-American violinist and conductor Itzhak Perlman for its season opening concert on Sept. 11 at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.
“Nothing is more exciting than the thought of being back in our concert halls for opening night and the energy that comes with performing to a live audience,” said Tonya McBride Robles, BSO vice president and chief operating officer. “To be able to do this with Itzhak Perlman, one of the world’s most renowned violinists, is a night sure to be remembered in BSO history.”
The repertoire is expected to include Bach’s Violin Concerto No. 2, Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet, Fantasy-Overture and Ravel’s Boléro.
Beginning Sept. 1, BSO will require proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 in order to attend all indoor performances and events. This will include concerts at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and the Music Center at Strathmore. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test will not be sufficient to attend BSO events at either of these venues.
Until further notice, masks must also be worn over the nose and mouth at indoor BSO events at all times. Children under 12 who are not eligible for vaccination will not be admitted to BSO indoor events at this time.
