Patrons encouraged to wear best Disco attire for pre-concert costume competition
Principal Pops Conductor Jack Everly will lead the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in the final SuperPops performance of the 2008-2009 season Disco Days and Boogie Nights on Thursday, May 28 at 8:00 p.m. at the Music Center at Strathmore and Friday and Saturday, May 29 and 30 at 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, May 31 at 3:00 p.m. at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. The BSO musicians will be dressed in ‘70s attire as they perform alongside a cappella ensemble Chapter 6 and vocalists Anne Nicole Beck, N’Kenge Simpson-Hoffman and Betsy Wolfe.
This concert will take audience members back to the ‘70s with classic hits from popular groups, shows and movies. The groovy medley includes Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive,” Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” a myriad of movie theme songs and hits from ABBA, the Bee Gees and Billy Joel.
Prior to the concert, “scouts” will roam the lobby and concert hall, searching for the “grooviest” audience members with the best disco attire to receive a special prize!
