Maryland has arts institutions of national prominence, such as the Baltimore Symphony. Regional interdisciplinary arts institutions offer professional and amateur productions, and over 30 schools and academies are devoted to training young artists. Some, like Baltimore's School for the Arts (a public high school) and the Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, give public performances.
Colleges and universities in Maryland host touring art exhibits, dance and theater troupes, soloists, chamber music groups, and orchestras. Among these are the Maryland Handel Festival at the University of Maryland, College Park; the Distinguished Artist Series of the U.S. Naval Academy; and art exhibits at the Elizabeth Myers Mitchell Gallery, St. John's College, Annapolis.
