Once again, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is inviting all "rusty musicians" to take part in the ensemble's summer training programs. This time, though, both orchestral and chamber opportunities will be available.

Musicians from around the world will have the opportunity to play alongside BSO musicians, learning the ins and outs of the orchestral and chamber experience from this premiere band.

Those musicians selected for the orchestral track will explore hallmarks of the repertoire, including Hector Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique and Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 6.

Meanwhile, for those looking for a more intimate experience, the BSO's chamber track allows applicants to choose both ensembles and individual works, allowing musicians to figure out what's best for their time and talent.

"Orchestras have been trying to figure out how to connect with people who have an innate passion for music but who set that aside for a career," said BSO president and CEO Paul Meecham.

"We're riding that wave, of people's need for a different kind of participation, rather than just sitting in an audience," he continued.

All the same, you must decide fast! Applications are due by 5 p.m. on January 21.
