Baltimore Choral Arts presents Off-the-Grid: Music for the Moment, premiering on WMAR-2 Television.
The second Off-the-Grid concert will focus on works written to highlight specific causes and aid protests fighting against social injustices. In juxtaposition with the somber and reflective music of liberation, the concert will conclude with an international virtual chorus heralding victory with Handel’s Anthem for the Foundling Hospital, featuring the Hallelujah Chorus.
