Heard about this one yet? The BSO is offering a new summer program called the BSO Academy, where for one week, June 13-19, amateur musicians can learn and perform with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. Essentially, it’s Rusty Musicians, but BIGGER.
The week includes lessons, rehearsals, sectionals, and “enrichment classes” (beats me), and culminates in a finale performance and reception. Respighi’s The Pines of Rome and Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra are on the aural menu for the concert, to which the public is invited.
The program is open to all musicians 22 and older, and applications are due by March 15; you are invited to include a CD of you playing up to ten minutes of material. Read about tuition and fees here, you can apply here, and you’ll know by April 5 if you’ve been accepted. Good luck!
