The concert begins at 6:45 p.m. with Kent County Public School students providing pre-show entertainment, playing several songs on bucket drums. "Getting to perform in front of the audience for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is an exciting opportunity for our community to see how talented our students are," said music teacher Jodi Bortz. Students from H.H. Garnet and Rock Hall elementary schools, will perform Harry Belafonte's calypso classic "Jump in the Line." The bucket drum ensembles have been working on these songs over the summer as part of Kent County Public Schools' Acceleration Academy. The buckets were provided by Home Depot and JBK Ace Hardware.
The BSO (Baltimore Symphony Orchestra) makes their final stop on the first leg of the Music for Maryland Tour in Kent County. This family friendly program features American favorites including Jonathan Leshnoff’s Dancing Blue Crabs! and a special nod to Kent County and Superman himself, Clark Kent, with John Williams’ Superman March.
