Backstage at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall: An Inside Look at a Modern Landmark

Home of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra since its opening in 1982, the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall is a visual landmark in the Midtown-Belvedere neighborhood and a marriage of form and function on the inside. On our tour, we will walk the stage and explore the basement, music library, and the area where the musicians hang out before the show. Along the way, we’ll learn the story of the Meyerhoff family, the work to create the Symphony Hall and its acoustical design, and the unforgettable concerts held within its walls.

Happy New Year! We are ready to ring in 2017 with some great new Baltimore Behind the Scenes tours.

On Tuesday, January 10, we’ll go backstage at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall to learn about acoustical design, music legends, and the history of the Symphony Hall and the Meyerhoff family. On our tour, we will walk the stage and explore the basement, music library, and the area where the musicians hang out before the show.

On Saturday, February 4, we’re visiting the 150-year-old Manger Packing Corporation in southwest Baltimore to learn about the tradition of sausage making and Baltimore’s German heritage from Alvin Manger, great-grandson of the company’s founder and current patriarch of the Manger family’s business.

Finally, please join our statewide partner Preservation Maryland on Wednesday, January 4 for a town hall meeting to learn about how you can advocate for preservation during this year’s Maryland Legislative session. The meeting is at Union Mill (1500 Union Avenue) at 6:30 pm. Registration is not required!

I hope your new year is starting off well and I hope you can join us for these and other tours in the year ahead.
