"Rusty Musicians" in Baltimore HUGE Success

On Tuesday, February 2, 2010 at the Music Center at Strathmore, approximately 200 musicians joined the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra onstage to perform the first part of a two-night event titled “Rusty Musicians with the BSO.” Envisioned by Music Director Marin Alsop, local amateur musicians who played an orchestral instrument had the rare chance to perform with a professional symphony orchestra, as part of the BSO’s celebration of its fifth year at The Music Center at Strathmore, the Orchestra’s second home located in Bethesda, Md. A second crop of 200 “Rusty Musicians” will repeat the experience this evening.

A palpable buzz was in the air and ‘Rusty’s’ and BSO musicians alike raved about the novelty and fun of this grand experiment.
