Originally called The Music Hall when opened in 1894, the Modell Lyric hosts a variety of entertainment options, from Broadway shows and Operas, to stand-up comedians and speakers.

Officially named the Lyric Theatre in 1909, the center was home to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for over 65 years until 1982. In 2010 the venue welcomed its newest name, the Patricia & Arthur Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric, after the Modell family funded a renovation to modernize and expand parts of the building, which allowed for larger acts.

Clapp Communications markets, promotes and drives sales for the Modell Lyric’s Broadway and Opera series. Clapp Communications collaborates with teams at both the Lyric and the shows’ promoters to create comprehensive marketing plans designed to deliver results. The compendium of work includes PR, media planning and placement, sponsorships, promotions and “out of the box” thinking with various media partners in Baltimore and Washington DC.  Media placements include print, broadcast television, radio, online, cable and out of home.
