Baltimore Symphony Orchestra musicians will perform chamber music for folks responding to the nationwide American Red Cross appeal for blood and platelets in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. The performance should add considerably to the ambience for the donors (and perhaps provide welcome distraction for any squeamish ones among them).
In a statement, the musicians said they "want to bring awareness to this need for donations. We also share concern for our fellow colleagues in the Houston Symphony, Houston Grand Opera, and other Houston cultural organizations whose members and buildings have been severely impacted by this storm."
The music will be performed on Labor Day, noon to 2 p.m., at the American Red Cross Donor Center, 2405 York Road, Suite 300, Timonium.
