Signaling the start of the social season, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) will hold its annual Gala Concert on Saturday, September 7 at 8:30 p.m. at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. This year’s Gala will be led by BSO Principal Pops Conductor Jack Everly. The concert features the band Pink Martini with vocalist Storm Large, who will collaborate with the BSO for an intoxicating mix of cabaret, samba, jazz and Hollywood musicals. National Public Radio’s news correspondent Ari Shapiro, a frequent guest vocalist with Pink Martini, will perform. The Washington Post praised Mr. Shapiro’s past performance: “Stereotypically tall, dark and handsome, Shapiro glided across the stage, crooning like a professional.” Please see below for program details.

Described as a hip “little orchestra” with a multicultural sound, Pink Martini has performed with orchestras around the world as well as in venues that include Carnegie Hall and Paris’ legendary L’Olympia Theater. Pink Martini draws inspiration from around the world, which explains its multilingual repertoire and diverse audience. This inclusive musical style fits perfectly with the BSO’s mission to serve the region’s entire community.

The BSO Celebration Gala is chaired by longtime BSO supporters Ava Lias-Booker, Beth Goldsmith, and Lainy LeBow-Sachs and is the organization's largest and most important fundraising event of the year. It raises funds to support the Orchestra's educational outreach programs in Baltimore and throughout Maryland. The Celebration Gala offers an evening of entertainment and fine dining provided by Classic Catering. Pre- and post-concert gala festivities will take place in an event tent located just outside of the Meyerhoff.
