Welcome from the Artistic Director
Classical music old and new unerringly captures our imaginations. We cannot help but be enlivened, challenged, disturbed, comforted, transfixed, transformed and thus profoundly enriched. These are captivating musical expressions, ideas and emotions, and each composer's offering contains an unending wealth of riches for the imagination and the heart!
I am thrilled to begin my ninth year as Artistic Director & Conductor of the Handel Choir this season. What a pleasure it has been for me to be a part of this organization's growth and to work with our outstanding singers, instrumentalists, board members and staff; all this, while enjoying colleagues in other Baltimore fine arts and education organizations! This is such a wonderfully supportive community, I believe, because we all know the positive impact of the arts is indisputable.
We perform to share with you the marvelous discovery of this life-affirming phenomenon called music. If you have heard one of our recent concerts, come back. If you haven't heard us lately, join us.
