Much of the national media in recent days has painted a very one-sided picture of Baltimore. While Baltimore is plagued with some serious problems, it’s also a resilient, compassionate city with lots to offer. That’s why it’s so lovely to see that the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s response to the civil unrest in town has been to play a free concert. Open to everyone. This afternoon. 

According to the BSO Facebook page, the concert is scheduled for noon on the steps of the Meyerhoff. This feels like a better opportunity for connection and healing than having a couple of baseball teams play to an empty stadium
