February 01, 2010|By Baltimore Sun staff

Though two Baltimore-based musical groups lost in the 52nd annual Grammy Awards Sunday, Marin Alsop, conductor for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, did come away a winner.

The BSO's recording of Leonard Bernstein's epic, controversial music-theater piece "Mass" was a nominee for Best Classical Album, a category won by the San Francisco Symphony. Alsop conducted Jennifer Higdon's Percussion Concerto on a London Philharmonic recording that was named Best Classical Contemporary Composition.

"Great Day" by the children's band Milkshake was nominated for Best Musical Album for Children. Ziggy Marley won.
