I was saddened but not surprised to read Marin Alsop’s frustration at the lack of promotion for innovative programs at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (“BSO music director Marin Alsop criticizes how symphony is run, hints she is “nearing the end” of her tenure,” Nov. 13).
The creative programs Ms. Alsop has produced here have engaged non-traditional audiences in art and music, and this effort enriches all our lives. Her professional excellence and her dedication to reaching out to the people of Baltimore needs to be celebrated. To lose such a consummate musician would be to lose an irreplaceable treasure.
