When Marin Alsop was appointed the Music Director of the Baltimore Symphony in 2007, there were some in the group that were not pleased. But it must have worked out…she will now hold that position until 2021. A violinist by training, she has founded two ensembles, studied with Leonard Bernstein, and was the first woman to conduct the Last Night of the Proms. And if that’s not enough, you can also find Alsop at the helm of the São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Catch up on all her latest news and press, recordings and projects, her busy schedule of concerts and events and watch video clips and interviews from her career to date.
