Victor Borge, the noted pianist and comedian, has had to cancel his scheduled performance with the Baltimore Symphony next week, due to the grave illness of his wife. Consequently, the BSO SuperPops season will open instead with the Smothers Brothers, who will perform four concerts, Sept. 21-24. The duo, known for their puckish wit and impish interplay, last appeared with the BSO in 1993.
Newly appointed BSO Assistant Conductor Lara Webber will also be on the bill, conducting light pieces by Tchaikovsky and others. Tickets for the Borge concert will be honored for the Smothers Brothers shows; for further information, or to purchase tickets, call 410-783-8000.
