All you need is an internet connection! Each barcode will be assigned a specific URL, so that you will be able to access the next clue by typing www.baltimoreconcertopera.com/1234567 (example URL) into your web browser. Any device that gives you access to the internet gives you a chance to win! Sign up now, get your friends involved!

Okay, who wants to be on my team… this is going to be awesome! Can I get an “AMEN?” Please leave me a comment if you plan on participating. If you’re too far away from the Baltimore Renaissance, let me know what you think of Baltimore Concert Opera’s social media blitz. Are you one of the vendors? As usual, give me all the juicy details…
Thanks for the plug! Don’t wait to sign up…we need to have 50 on board in order to launch…getting close, but every last one helps. Would love to reconnect afterwards!
No problem Brendan!
I’m going to try to get a little team together. This is such a fantastic idea. You are really doing some innovative things for opera in Baltimore – Congrats!
