Recent statewide restrictions on crowds during the coronavirus pandemic have resulted in event cancellations left and right. For working musicians and other performers who rely on gigs for their main source of income, no audiences means no money.
But Creative Alliance is working to ensure that performers and audiences practice safe social distancing while not distancing themselves from great art.
With social distancing in place amid the coronavirus pandemic, the site-specific theater company Single Carrot Theatre will perform the final show of its season entirely online, the group announced today.
And it’s a fitting move, given that the two protagonists are internet personalities going through a break-up.
But Baltimore Soundstage is proposing a way for the show to go on amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Soundstage said it will livestream any artists’s event or help create a music video, album, recording or other project for digital audiences to enjoy “in an effort to help support our hardworking and dedicated staff.”

This is what you get when you put the music of composer Johannes Brahms side by side with art rock legends Radiohead: a “mood of anxiety and brooding pathos.”
So says arranger and conductor Steve Hackman, who will join the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra on May 15 to weave together the works of these two artists whose creative work is separated by more than a century, the orchestra announced today.

The music of Baltimore’s Horse Lords has always borne, at heart, a radical trigonometry. Formed in the early 2010s, the quartet–drummer Sam Haberman, guitarist Owen Gardner, saxophone player/percussionist Andrew Bernstein and bassist/electronics guy Max Eilbacher–dependably tussle genres into cinched shapes.
Children pair off inside the newly opened Guardian Baltimore jiu-jitsu studio and try to cross one of their legs behind their partner to take their rival down.
As they fall, the students slam their hands against the mat–a trick that studio owner Carlos Raba says will stop their heads from hitting the ground–and the sound reverberates through the room.
Safety comes first for Raba as he teaches the kids to let themselves fall, rolling backwards, rather than trying to catch themselves with their arms or elbows, which could dislocate a shoulder or cause other injuries, he said.
“When we fall, we want to fall across the mat like we’re spilling across the mat,” he said, first describing the motion, then rolling backwards from a squatting position.
