Future Symphony Institute to be held at UB

Launched by BSO player to study outlook, paths for orchestras

Andrew Balio is best known around here for the gleaming sound and refined musicality he regularly provides as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's principal trumpet, a post he has held since 2001. Offstage, Balio devotes a great deal of his energies to strategizing about the future of classical music and the survival of orchestras.

The trumpeter has organized a forum where he and some high-profile guests will get to address these issues. The two-day Future Symphony Institute will be held next weekend at the University of Baltimore.

"I've been studying this subject since I got here 13 years ago from the Israel Philharmonic," Balio says, "making contacts, looking at the whole nonprofit arts culture and the culture of musicians' unions. And I've been looking at all those think tanks they have in D.C., which are very effective at distilling information down to something that can be turned into useful policy."
