OUR ORCHESTRA OVERSEAS The BSO recently returned from its first international tour in 13 years, making stops in Ireland and the UK. Maestra Marin Alsop led the Orchestra to international acclaim with its BBC Proms performance and its appearance in the Edinburgh International Festival. In celebration of the centennial of Leonard Bernstein’s birth, Alsop payed homage to her mentor by programming much of the American composer’s music throughout the tour. The Orchestra’s success this summer would not have been possible without the support of our home audience. Thank you to our dedicated patrons who attend our performances in Baltimore, Strathmore and overseas!
