Join the Party on the Patio, featuring appetizers and cocktails for purchase, prior to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's all-Beethoven concert at Strathmore. Then see conductor Josep Caballé-Domenech and pianist Andrew Staupe take the stage with the BSO for three of the beloved composer's most significant middle-period works. The show opens with Beethoven's heroic overture to his opera Fidelio, continues with the beautiful Piano Concerto No. 3 and builds to a perfect summertime finale with his ode to nature, Symphony No. 6 ("Pastoral"). Staupe is a prize-winning pianist out of Minnesota, who made his acclaimed Carnegie Hall debut in 2012 and recently appeared on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion. He's also toured internationally and performed with many of the U.S.'s major symphonies. Learn More
Parking is NOT free for shows at the Levine School of Music, but is free for the Strathmore. Confusing and disappointing.Percussionists Manny Arciniega and Adam Green: Unknown Voices travel • May 08 2014 star this tip starred
Leave home early, even if you live close. At this time of year and time of evening, Rockville Pike and other roads are usually bumper-to-bumper, plus the line to get into the parking lot (from Rockville Pike onto Tuckerman Lane, (vs. where you enter for the Mansion, despite the posted road sign), is one lane, also bumper to bumper. Parking is free but another challenge still lies ahead with long waits for elevators in the parking garage, transversing the long, elevated corrider between the parking lot and the venue, and additional elevators with long lines inside the venue, which take you to the level of your assigned seats (there is an elevator operator checking tickets and telling individuals if they're on the correct elevator, etc.). If you're not familiar with this whole scenario, best to leave a trail of breadcrumbs from your parking space to your seat, assuming there are no birds in sight. : \A Candlelight Christmas travel • Dec 24 2013 star this tip starred

The event was fantastic. I oftern fall asleep during symphonic music concerts, however each of these pieces were exciting, energetic, and extremely well done. The conductor was young...I expect he will be an international sensation by the time he's 40...
