Spencer, William B. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, 1965-1982: The Meyerhoff Years. D.M.A. diss., Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, Peabody Conservatory of Music, 1994.
Annotation / Notes: Spencer's dissertation examines the remarkable growth of the orchestra during Joseph Meyerhoff's tenure as chairman of the orchestra's board of trustees. Drawing on the orchestra's extensive historical records, oral history interviews and archival documents at Maryland Historical Society, the Peabody Archives and Pratt's Maryland Room, Spencer paints a vibrant portrait of an orchestra in transition and the struggle to build a performance hall. Union negotiations, race-relations, management strategies, and the changing image of the orchestra are reviewed in depth. Spencer enlivens his text with back-stage stories from musicians and former conductors.
