PEABODY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
The Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, founded in 1857, is reinventing the training of 21st-century citizen artists through its new Breakthrough Curriculum in Performing Arts Leadership, and an ensembles program designed to reflect today’s professional opportunities. The Conservatory’s flagship ensemble, the Peabody Symphony Orchestra (PSO), under the direction of Joseph Young, Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Artistic Director of Ensembles, employs the largest instrumental forces of all Peabody ensembles and delivers the most performances during the season.
Programming for the orchestra provides both its student musicians and audiences with exposure to a rich and diverse repertoire, including not only standard orchestral selections, but also contemporary works, American music, and premieres of new orchestral pieces.
Peabody orchestras have regularly won ASCAP Awards for the Adventuresome Programming of Contemporary Music, and Peabody competition winners, faculty, and distinguished guest artists often perform with the PSO.
