Workers remodeling a 19th-century rehearsal hall at the Peabody
Institute have found 10 dusty jugs of moonshine in an unlocked closet, where

that the hooch was the handiwork of Gustav Strube, the first conductor of the Baltimore
Symphony Orchestra. —Heather Dewar

Thanks for the… *hic!* suggestion, Rosemary.
