The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) presents the third performance in its 2018-19 Pulse concert series: Dan Deacon on January 17. 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. “This season of Pulse offers perhaps our most daring and diverse lineup of musical talent yet,” said Hersh. “Each featured artist represents an entirely unique genre, and as each voice is fused with the power and versatility of our BSO musicians, the resulting collaborations promise to be nothing short of extraordinary.”
Baltimore musician Dan Deacon is an artist who defies all genres and knows no bounds. When he isn’t performing in major venues like Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center’s David Koch Theater, Deacon is noted by Rolling Stone as making Baltimore “a place people came to party” through his late-night, electronic raves. Deacon also joined Miley Cyrus on her Milky Milky Milk Tour, opening for the popstar throughout major cities in the U.S.
The concert opens with members of the BSO performing classical works by Satie, Bach and Du Yun, followed by a set by Dan Deacon. 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 soundscapes in the lobby curated by Dan Deacon. The pre-concert party also features happy hour drink specials from The Brewer’s Art, Boordy Vineyards, Baltimore Spirits Co. and National Bohemian, as well as food from local Baltimore restaurants including Dooby’s, Mexican on The Run and The Charmery.
