Bach in Baltimore kicks off its 35th Anniversary Season with a concert featuring two musical forms that define Baroque Period Music. The concert opens with Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 1 in C Major, a masterwork in Baroque counterpoint, a technique that uses multiple melodies to play simultaneously, creating contrast, highlight, and interplay. Bach excelled at counterpoint, one of the many reasons his music stands the test of time. A Baroque cantata will close the concert. Bach in Baltimore is one of the only music ensembles that regularly performs Bach’s cantatas.

Women are extinct, everyone's gay, abortion is illegal — and Jason got pregnant. But however unplanned the pregnancy was, nothing could be less expected than the chain of events it would set in motion.
Robert O’Hara’s audacious, hilarious allegory envisions an uncannily familiar future – one where abortion has been universally criminalized and women have gone extinct from centuries of mistreatment. Even the universal homosexuality that’s resulted and man’s new procreative capacity have not stopped them from fucking everything up.
