Remember how Baltimore is a mecca for low-cost, high-quality culture? Well the Peabody Institute is taking that idea to its logical conclusion this fall.

The Johns Hopkins-affiliated conservatory is offering all of its concerts for free this season. Since free stuff always requires something, reserving the no-cost tickets is required for some concerts. The ensembles are made up mostly of students. But let’s face it, they’re really talented students. And they’ve got some world class supervision.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra’s Marin Alsop, who is Director of Graduate Conducting at the school, will lead the Peabody Symphony Orchestra for several performances, as well as Detroit Symphony Orchestra music director Leonard Slatkin.

Along with the PSO, Peabody also has contemporary, opera and a concert dedicated to celebrating acoustic renovations.

Check out the full schedule.
