Maurice Feldman has had a long association with the BSO, first through his mother, Sara Feldman, a violist and the first full-time female instrumentalist with the Baltimore Symphony. As a child Maurice thought “doesn’t everyone have string quartets playing in their living rooms?”
Throughout his adult life Maurice has been a devoted BSO concert attendee and volunteer on many fronts, including serving as the first male president of the Baltimore Symphony Associates. His wife Sandy, who currently serves as vice president for membership, shares his understanding and appreciation for the orchestra and what it takes to maintain its superb level of musical excellence.
A professional clarinetist and educator Maurice started his career in the U.S. Army Field Band, traveling throughout Europe and Asia. He then spent more than 30 years as an instructional specialist in the Baltimore County public schools, teaching hundreds—if not thousands—of students over the many years. Although retired from teaching Maurice still plays in several ensembles, including the Social Security Administration Concert Band, the Columbia Jazz Band (which also travels on a two-week international tour every two years), the Senior Jazz Band, and the Salvation Army Band.
Including the BSO in his estate plan came naturally to Maurice. “The BSO has been part of my life since early childhood, and through the Legato Circle, part of me will live on at the Symphony after I've gone. This is a great way to stay connected for generations to come.”
