BSO Encore

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra returns to radio with BSO Encore Sundays at 1pm here on WBJC! Each two-hour program features never-before-released recordings from Marin’s tenure including signature repertoire, BSO commissions and world premieres, community collaborations, and BSO musicians as soloists. These broadcasts are made possible with generous support from PNC and the Friends of WBJC.

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.
