Baltimore Choral Arts' holiday choral favorites continue a 38-year tradition with Christmas with Choral Arts, broadcasted by WMAR-TV, WYPR Radio and WBJC Radio. This year, we return to the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen for this special holiday performance featuring a brass ensemble.
On her debut album Alone At Last, Tasha celebrates the radical political act of being exquisitely gentle with yourself. For years, the Chicago songwriter has dreamed hard of a better world -- she's worked with the local racial justice organization Black Youth Project 100 and has been on the front lines at protests around the city. But as she returned to the guitar, an instrument her mother first taught her to play when she was 15 years old, she began exploring the ways music can be a powerful force for healing.
Our special children’s program Christmas for Kids will make its return with a brand-new twist, featuring Synetic Theater in collaboration with Young Audiences of Maryland. This performance is OUTDOORS, you may bring your own lawn chairs or picnic blankets. Lawn chairs available to rent at venue.
Join us for a special Winter celebration of our ancestors and the traditions that unite us. Learn about traditional ancestral veneration practices across cultures, open your heart to the wisdom of the Elder Circle, and appreciate performances and presentations that remember, revere, and celebrate those that have passed on. This program is led by Yoruba Priestess Iya Keturah and will include a special Masquerade dance by members of her Ile (West African Traditional Spiritual Community), as well as presentations from members of other ethnic and spiritual communities .
The chorus joyously returns to the stage to perform Charpentier’s beautiful Messe De Minuit Pour Noël, selected movements from Bach’s Cantata 140, Sleepers Awake, Mozart’s Litaniae Lauretanae, and several lovely holiday pieces including a special arrangement of “The Holly and the Ivy” by Ola Gjeilo. The HCS will be accompanied by a professional chamber orchestra and organist.
