The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) announces the fourth and final performance in its 2017-2018 Pulse concert series: Moon Taxi on May 17, 2018. The concert takes place at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, MD.
Under the leadership of BSO Associate Conductor Nicholas Hersh, BSO Pulse pairs classical music with prominent alternative and indie artists. “Over the past two seasons, the BSO has continued to push its limits to discover new and thrilling musical juxtapositions in BSO Pulse,” says Hersh. “I am thrilled to be a part of this journey as we collaborate with this season’s featured artists and explore the fundamental connections between these diverse genres.”
From Nashville, TN, Moon Taxi has performed at festivals including Bonnaroo, Coachella, Governor’s Ball, Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, among others. With music featured in multiple commercial and TV placements, the group’s latest single “Two High” has topped over 60 million streams on Spotify.
This concert opens with a performance of a classical piece by members of the BSO, followed by a set with Moon Taxi. The concert then culminates with a collaborative performance between the two groups. Between sets, Hersh and WTMD morning host Alex Cortright talk about the meaning behind the music, bringing the artists into the conversation to reveal insights and to draw parallels across genres.
The event begins with a pre-concert party with live music by Super City. The pre-concert party also features happy hour drink specials from Flying Dog Brewery and Gentleman Jack, as well as food from local Baltimore restaurants including Dooby’s, Parts & Labor and The Charmery.
