On December 6th, Legg Mason and the BSO treated 40 students and teachers from Wolfe Street Academy to a performance of The Snowman at the Meyerhoff. The BSO provided complementary tickets to Legg Mason's partner schools for this Midweek Education Concert and Legg Mason provided transportation.

The performance transported students to a winter wonderland come to life in a timeless story of a young boy's magical friendship with a snowman. As they traveled across the world together, students learned about the environmental impact of climate change.

The BSO Midweek Education Concerts provide an interactive experience for students in Pre-Kindergarten through sixth grade. Each concert features exciting orchestral works and explores key arts integrated themes. All concerts are aligned to meet state and national curriculum and common core and next generation standards.

On April 24th, 44 students and teachers from Hampstead Hill Academy will take in a performance of Mahler's Titan; part of the 2013-2014 Legg Mason Open Rehearsal Series. This series offers serious music students in middle, high school and college a “behind the scenes look” at a working BSO rehearsal.

Legg Mason is also providing transportation for this trip and another trip on February 5th for City Springs Elementary/Middle School. Students will enjoy America the Beautiful, a concert that explores geography and geology while showcasing the beauty of the American landscape.

We would like to thank Legg Mason and BSO for their generosity and commitment to providing outstanding cultural enrichment opportunities for City Schools students.
