Bach in Baltimore Announces 35th Anniversary Season Featuring a World Premiere Work & More

Bach in Baltimore has announced its 35th Anniversary Season, consisting of thirteen ticketed concert events running from October 2, 2022 to June 4, 2023. Bach in Baltimore concerts are performed in some of the most gorgeous and sacred spaces throughout the Baltimore metro area from Ellicott City and Roland Park to Towson and Downtown Baltimore. Full details about our season, including a full outline of concert dates, venues, and pricing, can be found online at bachinbaltimore.org/concerts-tickets/.

Executive Director Rebecca Fanning enthuses about the upcoming season, "Our 35th Anniversary Season celebrates our namesake with beloved Baroque gems, including Bach's Brandenburg Concerti and Cantatas. Additionally, it is our most expansive season, reaching beyond the Baroque as we highlight classical, modern, and local composers." The festive and celebratory season includes Bernstein's Chichester Psalms and the world premiere of Maryland composer Ben Ellerin's Psalms on December 4; Handel's ebullient Water Music, Suite No. 1 on March 5; Saint-Saëns Organ Concerto arranged for organ & brass on April 16; the original 13 instrument arrangement of Copland's Appalachian Spring on May 21; and Mozart's epic Symphony No. 41 in C Major, "Jupiter," on June 4.

The biggest concert of the season will be Bach's immortal St. John Passion on April 2. Bach in Baltimore Music Director and Maestro T. Herbert Dimmock says, "In Bach's towering masterpiece, St. John Passion, we find all of the musical forms of the high Baroque. It is full of pageantry, drama, color, and wonder. It's an epic work of art that will showcase the immense talent of our choir, orchestra, and guest soloists."

This season, in addition to many favorite returning guest soloists, Bach in Baltimore will welcome its first cohort of "Emerging Artists." These talented young professionals are launching their professional music careers in our region, and Bach in Baltimore is proud to support these

budding artists in our concerts on October 23, November 6, February 12, March 5, April 2, and May 7. The first "Emerging Artists" roster includes Erica Marie Ferguson, soprano; Tess Ottinger, soprano; Elizabeth Sarian, soprano; Amanda Simms, soprano; Melissa Wimbish, soprano; Eric Carey, tenor; Christopher Longo, tenor; Luke Schmidt, tenor; Fred Redd, baritone; and Eliam Ramos, bass-baritone.
