The concert included a solo concerto performance by Alicia Murai, a flute student from Loch Raven High School.�
The students, all members of the County's high school honors band or orchestra, were selected through a highly competitive audition process.�
The selected students have participated in master classes with members of the BSO, and have held three separate rehearsals.�
Honor music students from Loch Raven and Parkville high schools were among the 1,400 students from Baltimore County middle and high schools who attended the performance.�
The students prepared for the performance by studying the concert repertoire which includes music by Verdi, Britten and Berlioz.

> The Business Revitalization Action Group held a contest for students last spring to develop a slogan to be printed on posters and refrigerator magnets for an anti-litter publicity campaign it developed working with the county.
The winner was Jamie Grove, an eighth-grader at Loch Raven Academy.
The free posters and magnets, funded with a $5,000 grant from the county Department of Economic Development, are available to schools, clubs and neighborhood associations and at more than a dozen participating chambers of commerce and business groups.
