Celebrating 'Zinman Day'


In recognition of his contributions to cultural and artistic life in Maryland and Baltimore, Gov. Parris N. Glendening and Mayor Kurt L. Schmoke have proclaimed today "David Zinman Day" in honor of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's music director.

Zinman, whose 13-season tenure as BSO conductor concludes at the end of the season, this evening will lead the symphony in a one-performance-only tribute concert. Among the works included in the program is Beethoven's "Triple Concerto," featuring Yo-Yo Ma, Emanuel Ax and Pamela Frank performing together.

Tonight's concert is sold out, but the show will be aired nationwide in a special edition of National Public Radio's "Performance Today" at 8 p.m.

Or, you can hurry over to the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and purchase tickets to the 10 o'clock rehearsal. (That's this morning.)

Rehearsal tickets are $15; $10 for students. For information, call (410) 783-8000.
