Music Heals at Nordstrom

The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra (ASO) recently announced its newest community outreach initiative, Music Heals, and now, is thrilled to showcase the program to the public through a special event in partnership with the non-profit organization Autism Speaks and Nordstrom in the Westfield Annapolis Mall.  On Thursday, March 28th at 6 PM, 20 year old Annapolis resident, Evan Bertrand, who was diagnosed with autism at a very young age, will demonstrate his musical talent by performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.

Music Heals

The Annapolis Symphony is excited to launch its newest outreach initiative Music Heals, a health and wellness program in which the ASO will partner with local community organizations to bring the transformative power of live music to those in need in healthcare facilities and schools serving children with learning differences.  The ASO and its community partners will use diverse live musical experiences to bring the restorative power of music to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals of all ages.

Arts Against Hunger Food Drive

Musicians come together to form a symphony. Dancers come together to perform a ballet. Voices come together to sing.  Now, all of them are coming together for a worthy cause. Several Anne Arundel County arts organizations - along with Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts and  Hard Bean Coffee & Booksellers - are hosting a food drive to benefit Anne Arundel County Food Bank. The “Arts Against Hunger” Campaign runs October 15 through December 17, 2012.

ASO Launches Mingling for Music Events

The Annapolis Symphony Orchestra (ASO) has launched a new initiative to attract the interest of younger audiences - not only to concerts but also for financial and volunteer support. Orchestras across the country are recognizing that the traditional audience is aging. “There is a virtually untapped audience of 20-45 year old professionals who, once they experience a performance or learn about our education and outreach programs, develop a sense of pride that this artistic force is right here in Annapolis and they want to be a part of it. I know this because that is what happened to me.
