Marin Alsop
The New York Times

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra announced that its music director, Marin Alsop, had signed a new contract that would keep her in that position to August 2015. In a news release, the orchestra said that Ms. Alsop, who became its 12th musical director in September of 2007, had signed a five-year contract extension. Her current contract was not due to expire until September of next year. The orchestra said that following the arrival of Ms. Alsop, it attracted 23 percent more new subscribers for its 2007-2008 season than in the previous year, and that annual fund giving grew 31 percent to $12.1 million by the end of the 2008 fiscal year. Earlier this year, the orchestra said that its musicians would give back $1 million through wage freezes and other concessions to help it weather the recession, and that Ms. Alsop had personally given $50,000 towards an additional $2 million in matching funds that the orchestra was seeking.
