TOWSON, MD—The Baltimore Music Educators Wind Symphony will perform a benefit concert in Towson later this month to raise money for Kids Helping Hopkins. The concert is free, open to the public, and will be held on April 27, 2024 at 5 p.m. at the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology.

The Baltimore Music Educators Wind Symphony is made up of current and retired Baltimore County Public School educators, community members, and is conducted by Dr. Shane Jensen, BCPS music education specialist, and Dr. Brian Scheckenburger, BCPS music education supervisor. The ensemble will perform a variety of pieces from a number of different composers, including two BCPS graduates, Adrian Sims of Catonsville High School and Sean Marshall of Woodlawn High School. The performance will also include a new work commissioned by the ensemble by Marshall.

The money raised from the event will go directly towards supporting Kids Helping Hopkins, an organization that works to raise money for the Child Life Department at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center. The organization was founded in 1994 by Anita Rozenel, a BCPS music teacher, and her husband. More information about Kids Helping Hopkins can be found on their website.

Carver Center for Arts and Technology is located at 938 York Road in Towson (21204).
