2023-2024 Season

Handel Choir of Baltimore brings together excellent singers to perform beautiful and challenging choral music.
In addition to our annual December Messiah with period instrument orchestra, our repertoire ranges from early music through newly commissioned works.
Our 2023-2024 season Baltimore Better Together celebrates collaboration with artists from all over the city, including Maryland State Boychoir, BSO pianist Lura Johnson, and chamber vocal ensemble Third Practice. Season repertoire includes beloved standards by Mendelssohn and Handel, new and old works by Baltimore composers, Bach’s monumental motet Singet dem Herrn, and a newly composed cantata for Baroque instruments and voices by Jasmine Barnes.
