Opening Day will resound with the music of Baltimore's "other Major League team" when roughly 85 musicians of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra christen the new ballpark with its first Star-Spangled Banner.
David Zinman will conduct the orchestra on the grass just behind second base about 3 p.m. Monday -- unless it rains or snows. Temperatures in the 40s would also strike the orchestra.
Eighty members of the Morgan State University Choir, directed by Nathan Carter, will sing the national anthem with or without the BSO. The choir will also sing the state and city anthems.
