Maybe more orchestral performances should incorporate high-fives and belly bumps.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra has thrown down a sprightly challenge to Michael Tilson Thomas & Co. with this song, written by bassist Jonathan Jensen: “Hail to the Ravens!”

It seems everybody’s looking to get a little pub – and a have a little fun – with the upcoming Superbowl match-up Sunday between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49-ers.

Our team over at the Meyerhoff went to the always-reliable Carmen songbook for this number. Wonder what San Fransisco will come up with?

I don’t know about you, but in a head-to-head match-up, I think my money would be safe with Marin Alsop over Tilson Thomas . . .
