Marin Alsop

BSO Music Director, Trailblazer

The energy is here in Baltimore.

What makes Baltimore special is the excitement and vibrancy of our arts community. I'm not just saying that because I'm the conductor of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. I'm saying that as an audience member, as a theatergoer and as a patron of the Walters and the Baltimore Museum of Art. Baltimore nurtures its avant-garde—there's a spirit here that reminds me of SoHo thirty years ago. The energy is here. Come and experience it for yourself.
