2020/2021 Special Concert Season

Messiah: Live Online!

Yes, Handel Choir IS presenting Messiah this year!

Straight to your living room from Grace United Methodist Church, Handel Choir of Baltimore continues its 86-year tradition of MESSIAH, performed with the unique sound of period instruments. Enjoy this live performance safely, as Maestro Brian Bartoldus assembles a smaller, safer group to perform the Christmas portion of MESSIAH for you.

Soloists Sarah Berger, Monica Reinagel, Allan Palacios Chan, and Peter Walker will join Brian and a masked chamber orchestra, while the chorus sings Handel’s masterpiece from their homes. And meanwhile enjoy a taste of our 2019 MESSIAH performance, recorded when we could safely sing together.

Free for all to enjoy! Donations gratefully accepted, to help support the choir and the larger community we build with you through music.

Free Fall Baltimore: Online!

Yes, we are still singing: in our homes and on our phones, offering our music to Baltimore however we safely can. As both you and we are largely confined to our homes, our Free Fall Baltimore Online Concert celebrates the beauties of home: from our personal homes to our shared American home. Join us for this first offering of our modified 2020/2021 season.
