Holst's The Planets is a thrill ride through the solar system, and is actually a series of tone poems about war and peace, love and joy, and life and death. In "My Sister's Voice" by Reena Esmail, a Hindustani singer and a Western soprano join together in a ravishingly beautiful story of crossing cultures. And, Vaughan Williams' work inspired by English Renaissance composer Thomas Tallis features the lush sound of the Columbia Orchestra strings. Enjoy this masterpiece in person at the Jim Rouse Theatre or virtually from the comfort of your own home!

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.

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.
