Sustain the BSO's inspiring Education and Outreach programs!

Artistic Excellence

The BSO's appearances at Carnegie Hall received critical acclaim in national newspapers and media, securing the BSO's significance as one of the industry's top American Orchestras. The Orchestra continues to raise its profile by featuring rising young talent and making an impact on the classical recording world.

Engaging Youth

OrchKids, a 2013 National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award Winner and the BSO’s flagship music and mentorship program, serves Baltimore City schools, students, and families providing over 750 Pre-K through 8th graders with instruments, academic instruction, positive role models, daily healthy meals and more.  The BSO also provides educational programs that inspire 55,000 students annually.

Life is Better with Music - Lifelong Learning

Marin Alsop's revolutionary vision of expanding the Orchestra's relevance within the community is being realized through programs such as the BSO Academy and Rusty Musicians. These programs reach new audiences by reconnecting amateur musicians with their musical passion through interaction with professional BSO musicians. Our accessible ticket pricing initiative has made the BSO one of the area's most affordable entertainment options, and the Off the Cuff series has taken classical music appreciation to a whole new level by engaging and educating new audiences.
