A MESSAGE FROM OUR
What an incredibly exciting year 2018 has been for the Baltimore Symphony
Orchestra! In January, we publicly launched our Resounding Campaign. In May, our
ground-breaking OrchKids program celebrated a decade of transforming the lives
of Baltimore City youth. In August, our world-renowned Orchestra returned from
its first international tour in over thirteen years, performing to sold-out crowds in
concert halls in London, Edinburgh and Dublin and garnering substantial acclaim
for our city, state and region. And in September, we celebrated the dedication of our
first new endowed chair in over thirteen years—the Levi Family Principal Timpani Chair!
These significant achievements underscore what an enormous cultural asset we
have in our Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and why the time is now to play our part
in ensuring its future sustainability.
We want to express our enormous gratitude to the many volunteers, musicians and
staff who have given so generously of their time, energy and resources to make this
Campaign a RESOUNDING success. We also want to acknowledge our outstanding
leadership donors who to date have committed $46.8M to this ambitious fundraising
effort—allowing the BSO to further its trajectory of artistic excellence, accessibility
and community impact throughout the state and the region for generations to come.
Support for your Orchestra has never been stronger. Your investment has fostered
one of the finest orchestras in the world. With your continued partnership and
generosity, we will achieve even more, setting the foundation for another century
of extraordinary music!
