The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) will perform alongside several local high school musicians in a special "side-by-side" concert Thursday.
Musicians from Arundel, South River Meade and Old Mill high schools are among the 29 from the county selected to play with the orchestra and receive special instruction.
“This Side-by-Side experience is a real-life experience unlike any other that can be provided to young musicians. To a person, they cite the BSO Side-by-Side experience as the highlight of their high school musical years,” said Amy Cohn, AACPS’ coordinator of music, in a press release.
The concert is open to musicians and students only, so no tickets are available, said AACPS spokesman Bob Mosier.
The local musicians include:
- Jeremiah Quijote – 1st Clarinet
South River High
- Sarah Ellert – 1st Violin
- Dana Judy – 1st Violin
- Alexandra Bartlett – Viola
- Paige Berkebile – Violoncello
- Tony Fidyk – Percussion
- Jessica Zhao – 1st Violin
- Porscha Silva – Viola
Old Mill High
- Katherine Smolen – 1st Violin
