The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, The Clarice and the UMD School of Music have announced a groundbreaking partnership for 2023-24 featuring extraordinary performances, unique educational experiences and meaningful community engagement. In the first of these events, newly appointed BSO Music Director Jonathon Heyward co-hosts a conversation and performance with ethnomusicologist and UMD College of Arts & Humanities Dean Stephanie Shonekan. Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony channels the impish wit of his one-time teacher Haydn, while Unsuk Chin’s Subito con forza riffs on a phrase from Beethoven over the course of five frenetic minutes.


Chin: Subito con forza
Beethoven: Symphony No. 4


The BSO’s performances at The Clarice, and across the State, are made possible through the major support of Robert E. Meyerhoff and Rheda Becker.

This performance is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council, The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation and the University of Maryland's Arts for All initiative.
