The Meyerhoff Symphony Hall is turning 40 this year and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is shaking things up with a new conductor and a season of innovative music from around the world. To help the BSO usher in this new era, we hope you can join us for a Baltimore Heritage night on Saturday, June 3 to see Latin Fire.
Plan to arrive early on Saturday June 3 to celebrate Latinx heritage in the lobby with food for purchase from local food vendors, live music, and cultural performances! Also, BSO oboist and historian Michael Lisicky will chat with us before the show.
Stay late on June 3rd for the final BSO Late Night Trivia of the season! BSO violist Helen Hess returns as your host to test your knowledge of Latinx influence on classical music and the history of our city, with an appearance from Baltimore Heritage’s Executive Director, John W. Hopkins. You’ll want to study up, because the first-place prize is a doozy – two tickets to the Season 23-24 Gala Celebration on Saturday September 22, 2023, featuring Music Director, Jonathon Heyward, and Dance Theatre of Harlem.

Here’s what the BSO says about the show:
The scintillating young conductor Enrico Lopez-Yañez, already Principal Pops Conductor with the Nashville Symphony, makes his Baltimore Symphony Orchestra debut. Drawing on his Mexican-American heritage, in collaboration with the Costa Rican trumpeter Josè Sibaja and the Mexican soprano Mónica Abrego, Lopez-Yañez presents his own sparkling arrangements of Latin hits like “Tico-Tico no Fubá” along with classical gems rooted in the Spanish-speaking world, including a sultry suite from Bizet’s Carmen.
