BSO Encore


The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra returns to radio with BSO Encore! Tune in to WBJC each week to hear a never before released recording from the BSO’s archives. These broadcasts, made possible with generous support from PNC, showcase exceptional performances from Music Director Marin Alsop’s first two seasons with the BSO.

Hosted by Jonathan Palevsky and Kati Harrison, each two-hour program includes insights about the pieces that were performed from Marin Alsop and one of the BSO’s fabulous musicians.
