Road Scholar
Program #21471ENZ
5 Days | 4 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO), currently led by Music Director Marin Alsop, is internationally recognized as having achieved a preeminent place among the world's most important orchestras. On this special Road Scholar experience, go behind the scenes with the BSO to learn how it operates and to gain firsthand understanding of why the orchestra enjoys a devoted national and international following. Go backstage at Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, attend rehearsals and performances, and enjoy privileged access to orchestra musicians and staff. In addition, see why the orchestra is hailed not only for its enduring pursuit of artistic excellence, but also for its innovative education and community-outreach initiatives throughout Maryland.


Highlights

• Hear lectures from BSO musicians and staff to discover what makes a major orchestra tick. Also, enjoy exclusive access to a BSO rehearsal, mingle with orchestra musicians at a post-concert reception, and attend a ticketed BSO performance.
• Go beyond grand concert halls and into the classrooms of west Baltimore with the BSO’s award- winning outreach program OrchKids.
• Discover 18th-century Baltimore on an exploration led by Michael Lisicky, a member of the BSO’s oboe section, and town crier at historic Fell’s Point
