February 8, 2023

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is bringing Wakanda to Baltimore for orchestra concertgoers and movie fans. The BSO is honoring Black History Month with programs highlighting contributions from Black musicians, artists and composers as part of their “Hall for All“ initiative, a plan to diversify programming to reach more audiences at Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. “The Jazz Age — Harlem Renaissance,” “Marvel Studios’ Black Panther Live in Concert” and “Calypso Fusion” performances will “celebrate pivotal time periods … that encapsulate the evolution of Black music, spoken word, and film while highlighting talented composers, conductors, and musicians,” BSO president and CEO Mark C. Hanson said in a statement.
