Pulse music series starts tonight

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is in its 100th season, and they’re celebrating with something you might not expect… Pulse, a concert series presented by the BSO and radio station WTMD that brings together classical music and indie rock. Here’s how it works: The BSO will open with a classical performance (Philip Glass’ Symphony No. 3, for example), then a popular indie artist takes the stage for a set, and finally, the two perform together.

The series starts tonight with Dawes (and the Symphony No. 3 performance), and it looks like there are tickets available. I’m particularly excited about March’s concert with Dr. Dog–I’ve seen them live before and I can only imagine what kind of cool sounds they’d come up with in collaboration with the BSO. Aside from the concert, the event starts with a “happy hour hangout,” complete with pre-concert entertainment and local food and drink. Tix are $35.

Full sched:

  • September 24: Dawes
  • November 12: Wye Oak
  • March 24: Dr. Dog
  • April 28: The Lone Bellow
