Baltimore Choral Arts presents Off-the-Grid: Music for the Moment, premiering on WMAR-2 Television.
The second Off-the-Grid concert will focus on works written to highlight specific causes and aid protests fighting against social injustices. In juxtaposition with the somber and reflective music of liberation, the concert will conclude with an international virtual chorus heralding victory with Handel’s Anthem for the Foundling Hospital, featuring the Hallelujah Chorus. This concert rounds off the two-part experience of timely repertoire that reflects our current era.

Born in 1963 in Baltimore, jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut grew up in a home filled with the sounds of gospel music that his church-going parents played, along with jazz records by artists such as Thelonius Monk and Jimmy Smith. To this day, Chestnut’s ties to gospel music remain constant.
