Part of the Baltimore Jewish Community Center, the Gordon Center for Performing Arts takes a broad view of what Jewish culture means. It might mean a dance performance from an Israeli choreographer, a concert of the music of Felix Mendelssohn, or a modern klezmer-band performance. The venue was built to suit an eclectic array of art forms, including film?its movie screen is among the largest in the state.
The 550-seat concert hall itself, however, has an intimate feel. It's only 18 rows deep, with clear sight lines from every seat in the house. That's not all that makes it a welcoming place to catch a show: there's also the free, well-lit parking lot, the fully handicap-accessible auditorium, and an RF audio system for the hearing impaired.
