BSO takes an upbeat look at the '50s

Music Review

May 20, 2006|By TIM SMITH | TIM SMITH,SUN MUSIC CRITIC

Folks find the '50s endlessly fascinating for any number of reasons -- the clothes, the movies, the television, the attitude, the fantasy of idyllic American life. Above all, the music.

Personally, I value the decade chiefly for one specific product, I Love Lucy, so it was fun to hear the ultimate sitcom get lots of attention at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's latest SuperPops program -- "The 1950s: Golden Age of Black and White."

If you go BSO SuperPops will be performed at 8 tonight and 3 p.m. tomorrow at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $25 to $75. Call 410-783-8000 or visit baltimoresymphony.org.
