Marin Alsop Named 2009 Conductor of the Year by Musical America

November 19, 2008

Marin Alsop is the first woman to serve as music director of a big-budget, full-season American orchestra. She has created a newly committed music scene in Baltimore, with critical praise underlining how productive her relationship with the ensemble has become. Ticket sales are way up. A new educational initiative has begun. The orchestra is recording again. In short, a welcome optimism reigns at the Baltimore Symphony.

- Susan Eliott,, 18 November 2008
