Baltimore Sun

Continuing an effort to remake itself, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is expected this week to name an unconventional new president, a former Internet executive. James Glicker, 49, who has little experience in the orchestral field, is the choice for the BSO's top administrative job, pending approval by its board of directors, orchestra sources say. He had not worked for an orchestra before being hired by the BSO in January for the newly created position of chief marketing officer. While at Yale University, Glicker took music courses and directed that school's a cappella men's chorus, the Whiffenpoofs. His resume also lists senior administrative posts for a major record company, BMG (Bertelsman Music Group).
