The series kicked off Nov. 19 with a focus on “The Arts” featuring Marin Alsop, music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and the first woman to lead a major American orchestra.
Alsop discussed how, after meeting initial resistance from BSO musicians, she went on to boost the orchestra’s audience, produce new recordings, balance the budget, and get the BSO more involved in the community through outreach programs for needy youth and nonprofessional adult musicians.
Video of Alsop’s appearance on the Foggy Bottom campus, with an introduction by Dean Doug Guthrie, who also moderated a question-and-answer session, is available from FORA.tv. To watch the video, go here.
