Announcing our 2020-2021 season

The Howard County Concert Odyssey is excited to announce the schedule for our 2020-2021 season.  We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to hold these performances safely.  Except for the concert with UMBC, all events will be held at 4 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church, in Ellicott City.

On November 8, join us as we welcome the Theodicy Jazz Collective for a joyful afternoon of freedom songs to celebrate Veterans Day. The afternoon promises a mix of community song, reflection, and gratitude for those who have served.

On January 31, Jordan Prescott, acclaimed as one of the leading organists and scholars of his generation, will perform works of Verne, Tournemire, and Demessieux, who each celebrate milestone anniversaries in 2020 2021. His program will also feature the music of Bach and Howells.

On March 21, the Peabody Ragtime Ensemble, Maryland’s premiere vintage jazz ensemble, will play a range of jazz from Ragtime to Dixieland to Big Band.  The ensemble is known for providing audiences with a blend of informative narrative and virtuoso playing.

With a date planned for later in the spring, the HCCO will partner with the music faculty and students at UMBC to perform The Musical Heritage of Venice featuring the works by Monteverdi, Gabrieli, and Vivaldi.  The concert will be held at the Earl and Darielle Linehan Concert Hall, UMBC; 1000 Hilltop Circle, Baltimore.
