Editor: I came away from a recent visit to the Peabody Conservatory of Music filled with superlatives. It turned out to be a gratifying revelation. Besides being located on beautiful Mount Vernon Place, Peabody has wonderful facilities. The ingenious renovations to their old buildings and the magnificent new additions, most of them hidden from the public, without any doubt place Peabody in the front of music schools in this country.
Now internationally acclaimed, with an exciting and great faculty, safe and beautiful surroundings, more than 500 students from around the world chose Peabody as the music school to get the high-level education they want.
This vibrant institution has become a pillar of culture in our community. To insure its continued growth, we Baltimoreans and Marylanders must do our part and support this most prized jewel in our midst.
