BSO News: Orchestra fellowship program; Alsop on CNN with Amanpour
The Baltimore Symphony has launched an Orchestra Fellows Program in collaboration with Sphinx, the extraordinarily productive, Detroit-based non-profit organization devoted to increasing diversity in the arts. A primary focus of Sphinx is to provide opportunities for Black and Latino musicians.

The first recipient of the BSO's fellowship, a one-year mentoring program, is violinist Tami Lee Hughes, who began her tenure performing in the orchestra earlier this month.

In addition to participating in concerts and working with OrchKids and the Baltimore Symphony Youth Orchestra, Hughes will be mentored by music director Marin Alsop and BSO players.

Associate principal second violinist Ivan Stefanovic and violinist Gregory Kuperstein will help prepare Hughes for auditions with other orchestras.

The Baton Rouge-born Hughes, who will maintain a blog during her BSO fellowship, earned an undergraduate degree from the University of Minnesota, a master's and doctorate from the University of Michigan.

She has a wide range of orchestra, chamber music and solo experience, and has been featured on several recordings, including "Legacy: Violin Music of African-American Composers" (Albany Records).

In other BSO news, 

Alsop will be Christiane Amanpour's guest on the CNN program "Amanpour" Thursday, scheduled to air in our time zone at 3 and 5 p.m. It will also be available for online viewing.
