john williams conducting

Over in the Baltimore Sun they have published an article about how John Williams will be leading the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for the first time.  The concert is in aid of the musician's pension fund.

The site writes:

Williams remains as busy as ever with film projects, commissions for concert works and conducting gigs. One of the latter will find him in town Tuesday to lead the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in a benefit concert for the musicians' pension fund.

"Two years ago, [BSO music director] Marin Alsop wrote me and said, 'Please come to do a concert in Baltimore.' It took a while, but we finally worked out a date," Williams said. "I know it's a great orchestra, and I look forward to meeting the musicians. I like the rehearsal more than the concert sometimes."

The fundraiser marks Williams' BSO debut and his first trip to Baltimore. He is donating his services for the event.

"This is one of a group of concerts I've done like this around the country and will continue to do," he said. "We have the best orchestras in the world, and all of them need support. Maybe in some small way I can be of help to them."
