Baltimore Symphony planning #OneBaltimore concert

Baltimore Symphony planning #OneBaltimore concert

The #OneBaltimore hashtag has marked many online conversations surrounding the protests of the last few days. The Baltimore Symphony has announced a #OneBaltimore concert this Sunday, May 3, collaborating with the Soulful Symphony:

In light of the recent events surrounding the death of Freddie Gray and the civil unrest in our beloved city, we are organizing a #OneBaltimore Concert for Protest, Hope, Healing and Common Ground. There are moments in history that call forth the gifts that we have been given. This is that moment!

Music programmed includes “Go Down Moses,” “The Storm is Over,” the National Anthem and the Black National Anthem.

Do you know of other artistic responses to the unrest in Baltimore and beyond? Tell us about them in the comments below or on our Facebook page.

This comes in the wake of our performing arts organizations getting hammered by the curfew. The BSO rescheduled a pops concert for July, several theater companies have had to cancel performances, the Alvin Ailey Dance Co. had to cancel its performances at the Lyric Opera House, and Baltimore Concert Opera moved its performance to 6:30 this evening to abide with curfew regulations.

God bless the BSO! This article from the Baltimore Sun gives details on a number of other responses by the local arts community:

On Tuesday afternoon/evening, there was a wonderful performance scene at Pennsylvania and North Avenues, with several troupes of teenaged dancers and drummers giving it their all.

Our city is hurting but it is also loving. People are really giving of themselves in any way they can.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
