Baltimore Symphony's 'Rusty Musicians' outreach coming back to Meyerhoff Hall
Amateur players age 25 or older who can read music and play any standard orchestra instrument are welcome -- after going through the official application process, of course.
They will join BSO members and music director Marin Alsop in a rehearsal and performance of Tchaikovsky’s "Romeo and Juliet" and a couple of numbers from Bizet’s "Carmen" Suite No. 2.
The event will be held on ...
If you haven't yet experienced this community outreach program, or didn't get your fill in last year's presentation, go for it. The participants I've chatted with couldn't have been more enthusiastic about this immersion into the orchestral environment.
The number of participants is limited to the first 136 applications. Online registration is open now. Successful applicants will be notified by email by Aug. 10 and will then have until noon on Aug. 26 to pay a nonrefundable registration fee of $50.
The public is invited to attend the Rusty Musicians sessions at no charge.
