Students in Baltimore City Public Schools Grades 4-7 have an opportunity to experience a wonderful concert, being held at Johns Hopkins Shriver Hall on Friday, March 21, 2014. The event is entitled, The Baltimore Creative Connections Project and will introduce/present the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in a mini-concert. There will be two performances available – one at 11AM, the other at 1PM.
This project is a joint partnership between Johns Hopkins East Baltimore Community Affairs (JHEBCA), the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, Peabody Institute, Baltimore Creative Connections, and the UK’s Gildhall School of Music and Drama.
The concerts are free, but public schools are asked to contribute to the costs of transportation. Each concert will last for approximately one hour.
According to Carolyn Chance, Program Development Coordinator for JHEBCA, “The Baltimore Creative Connections Project promotes the development of collective and personal identity by providing a positive and invaluable musical cultural experience between students and young professionals from different walks of life.”
