2020/02/27

Conductor Marin Alsop will retire as music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra after the end of the season. After she retires, she will be the Conductor Laureate.

Allsopp became the music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in 2005. She became the first female conductor to become a music director for a major orchestra in the United States.

Allsop was born in New York Manhattan in 1956. She studied violin at The Juilliard School after graduating from Yale University. Since then, she has studied under Leonard Bernstein at the Tanglewood Music Festival.

She has been the principal conductor of the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra since the 2019/2020 season.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra was established in 1916 as the City Orchestra. It has been operating as a voluntary organization since 1942.

However, recently, there have been many talks on strikes by orchestra members with financial difficulties.
