Marin Alsop, the first female conductor of a major orchestra (Baltimore Symphony Orchestra) in the U.S., has made quite a splash with her innovations to reach out to her audiences and to keep classical music alive and well in this country. For her latest project, "Rusty Musicians," she has invited local area musicians to register for playing with the BSO. People over 25 who play any orchestral instrument, can read sheet music, and can attend a few rehearsals may register, but space is limited. The chosen musicians will play the fourth movement of Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony with the BSO in concert in February 2010.
