BSA students featured in the BSO's Appalachian Spring and Hairspray
BSA’s partnership with the world-renowned Baltimore Symphony Orchestra continued in the spring of 2016 with two collaborations in June.
These performances weren't a first for BSA's talented artists. In January 2013, fifty BSA students were cast in the world premiere of the concert production of Hairspray
which also featured John Waters as narrator at the BSO. The cast included ex-Monkee Micky Dolenz (as Wilbur Turnblad), Tony winner Beth Leavel (Velma Von Tussle), Paul Vogt, who played Edna Turnblad in the Broadway production. Check out these articles and photos in The Sun -- Click here!

In April 2013 the iconic ballet Appalachian Spring by Martha Graham, Aaron Copland & Isamu Noguchi was brought to life by BSA musicians, dancers and actors in performances in April. Students shone in the first ever high school production of the classic. They trained and prepared with Miki Orihara, Regisseur with the Martha Graham Center for Contemporary Dance, and Aaron Sherber, Music Director of the Martha Graham Dance Company. Baltimore Magazine selected BSA's Appalachian Spring as one of the best events of 2013. The groundbreaking performance of Appalachian Spring was also featured in print and online in both the arts sections of The Baltimore Sun and The Washington Post.
