Bach In Baltimore

http://Bach In Baltimore

Bach in Baltimore’s concert program is unique: the audience hears the beautiful music of Bach and also discovers what makes it so brilliant. Music Director and founder T. Herbert Dimmock begins each concert with a live demonstration and explanation – using orchestra and vocalists – of Bach’s musical language in the cantata to be performed. Six of our nine concerts are absolutely free to the public, even with the high costs associated with organizing them and paying our musicians and featured soloists. No other music organization in the Greater Baltimore area provides a season of free choral music concerts.

The Baltimore Chamber Orchestra

Baltimore Chamber Orchestra’s first performance, led by Maestra Anne Harrigan, was on January 29, 1984. She introduced the audience to a classical orchestra offering virtuoso performances that touch the heart. From its beginning, Baltimore Chamber Orchestra has grown to occupy an essential niche in the thriving arts scene of greater Baltimore. Our core repertoire is the overtures, concertos, and symphonies of Classical Era masters Haydn, Mozart Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Schubert, which we perform with the actual sized ensemble for which it was composed. BCO remains a group of exceptional musicians who are passionate about their performances. Indeed, the orchestra strives to meet the same standard established at its inception in 1984: to provide accessible, high-quality, classical music with an intimate touch.

Candlelight Concert Society

The Candlelight Concert Society (Candlelight) is a Maryland based concert presenter, offering professional world-class chamber music concerts, children’s programs, community outreach programs, master classes, and pre-concert lectures and discussions. The mission of the Candlelight Concert Society is to present the finest national and international chamber music ensembles and soloists, to provide young people with a stimulating introduction to the performing arts, and to reach out to those with limited opportunities to experience the arts.

Columbia Pro Cantare

The Columbia Pro Cantare is a mixed chorus of over 100 volunteer singers which seeks to present the finest choral music to a growing regional audience. Since the Spring of 1977, the Columbia Pro Cantare has delighted Howard County and metro area audiences with its concerts of music ranging from the classics of opera, oratorio, and the concert stage to American and European folk and spiritual music. Founded by Director Frances Motyca Dawson, as a professionally trained volunteer chorus to sing nine times with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at its Howard County concerts and to bring high quality musical experiences to local audiences with its own independent performances, CPC has more than fulfilled its purpose over the thirty-six years.
