When’s the last time you took in a symphony performance, or a painting class or even some modern dance lessons … for free? Never? Me either! But all of that changes this month thanks to Free Fall Baltimore and Susquehanna Bank!
Susquehanna Bank has a long-standing commitment of doing what counts in our communities to provide free or low-cost access to the arts. In that spirit, we’re proud to be the first-ever corporate sponsor of Free Fall Baltimore, organized by the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts. More than 80 venues are offering free performances, admission and experiences throughout the month of October. From dance and theater to music, museums and more, Free Fall has something for everyone. And did we mention it’s free??
Free Fall Baltimore was created six years ago as a means to increase access, interest and attendance in the city’s many cultural organizations, especially for families and young adults, who are the creative community’s future patrons. By supporting Free Fall, we are able to better connect our employees, customers, friends and neighbors with the rich and diverse cultural offerings in and around Baltimore.
One venue I particularly love is the Strand Theater Company on North Charles Street. Whatever is new and eclectic is always on deck at the Strand. And they’re hosting the coolest party for Free Fall – a Monster Mash-Up on October 27! Dress up as your favorite scary character and learn the history of monsters and their place in society. A haunted house, ghouls, witches, vampires, zombies and werewolves … when are werewolves NOT fun? AND create a story about your monster and share it with your fellow ghouls. To say I’m a little excited would be a “gross” understatement! (Learn more: www.strand-theater.org)
If monsters aren’t your thing, I promise you’ll find something that is. For more information about Free Fall Baltimore and the participating arts institutions, click here.
We hope to see you this month in Charm City!
