The Maestra and Groundbreaking Outreach

Having recently moved to Baltimore, I (unfortunately) have yet to hear the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, although I have played under the symphony's music director, Marin Alsop, on two occasions and, like all who have had that honor, been both impressed and very pleased. Two months into her first season as music director, Ms. Alsop has been featured in an very enlightening article in the New York Times.

In today's Times there is also an article about a wonderful project taking place in Harlem - one that we in the United States should definitely look at as a true model of what community engagement "should be all about".
