BSO performance and dance contest in honor of the rock icon.

Six months after the death of David Bowie, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will pay tribute to the musician with a concert at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

“The Music of David Bowie” will be performed Saturday, July 30, with guest conductor Brett Havens leading the BSO on stage with a full rock band.  The “symphonic odyssey” will include Bowie favorites such as “Heroes,” “Changes,” and “Rebel, Rebel.”


To celebrate the concert, the BSO is holding a “Let’s Dance” contest. Members of the public are invited to submit their best Bowie dance videos for a chance to win a package including: two tickets to the show, limo service for the evening, dinner at Ryleigh’s Oyster Bar, an opportunity to conduct the orchestra and backstage access after the concert.

The winning video will be featured on all of the BSO’s social media channels. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, July 27th. More information is available at bsomusic.org.
