Baltimore Running Festival

Bolt for the BSO is a team of over 100 musicians, supporters, staff members, and fans who will run in the Baltimore Running Festival on October 15th to raise awareness and money for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. They give the BSO a running start to their season by raising support for the Orchestra’s mission to touch the lives of 350,000 patrons each year through an array of programs that educate, engage and entertain music lovers of all ages. Without our educational programs, many of the 55,000 students we serve annually would not have exposure to the arts during their childhoods, and your support makes it possible for us to share the transformative power of music with Baltimore and the entire state of Maryland.
