BALTIMORE (WJZ)– She’s been called the world’s greatest living soprano. Renee Fleming will grace the stage with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) this weekend for one night to help celebrate a special anniversary as the season kicks off.

Mary Bubala has more.

Legendary diva Renee Fleming is coming to Baltimore to perform at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall to celebrate the BSO’s 30th anniversary.

Crews are setting up a huge tent. The gala is this Saturday, Sept. 15. It benefits the BSO’s educational programs.

“This gala is really to support programs like OrKids and all of our educational outreach which is so important to future generations.” Maestra Marin Alsop, the music director of the BSO, said.

BSO musicians are practicing now for the special night with the Grammy Award-winning soprano.

Fleming is fresh off her spectacular performances at the Queen’s Jubilee in London.

“She’ll be doing highlights from the operatic repertoire. They are pieces that everybody has heard, everybody knows, plus some more popular music and we’ll have our OrKids perform a bit,” Alsop said.

Tickets to the performance are still available but are going fast. To buy tickets for Fleming’s performance, click here.

The BSO’s new season begins the night before this Friday with a preview concert.
