  Tom talks with BSO Music Director Marin Alsop.

Her outstanding success as Music Director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra since 2007 has been recognized by two extensions in her tenure, now confirmed until 2021.  As part of her artistic leadership in Baltimore, Marin Alsop has created bold initiatives that have contributed to the wider community and reached new audiences.
In 2008 she launched ‘OrchKids’, which provides music education, instruments, meals and mentorship of the city’s neediest young people.  Engaging the local community, the BSO Academy and Rusty Musicians schemes also allow adult amateur musicians the chance to play alongside members of the orchestra under Alsop’s baton.

Marin's recommendations:  
We Are Water by Wally Lamb
David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell
