“I’m so happy my husband doesn’t know who I am,” Carolyn Williams said.

No, she’s not a misbehaving housewife on some tacky TV show. Williams was attributing her fresh rush of cheer to her participation in the inaugural BSO Academy, which will wrap up an intensive week of activities for adult amateur musicians with a “donor appreciation concert” and party on Saturday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

Nearly 50 people from around the region paid up to $1,650 for this new community outreach venture by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, a camp for grownups who wanted to take their musical interests to a different level.

It’s not like Williams doesn’t know music. Read the rest of the article and you’ll see she attended Peabody!

This article shows a picture of the group.

I like the idea of this! I think it’s not only good for the amateur musicians but for the professionals as well. (Who knows if the musicians from the BSO would agree with me. I doubt anyone from there reads this blog so I guess I’ll never know.)
