  • Baltimore Symphony Orchestra

    Established in 1916, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) is internationally recognized as having achieved a pre-eminent place among the world’s most important orchestras. Acclaimed for its enduring pursuit of artistic excellence, the BSO has attracted a devoted national and international following while maintaining deep bonds throughout Maryland through innovative education and community outreach initiatives. The BSO made musical history in September 2007, when Maestra Marin Alsop led her inaugural concerts as the Orchestra’s 12th music director, making her the first woman to head a major American orchestra. With her highly praised artistic vision, her dynamic musicianship and her commitment to accessibility in classical music, Maestra Alsop’s directorship has ushered in a new era for the BSO and its audiences. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will be at the Ferguson Center in Newport News on May 19 at 4 p.m. Enter now to win tickets!
