BALTIMORE MUSICALES AND THE WAR MEMORIAL ARTS INITIATIVE PRESENT AN AFTERNOON OF SONG AND INSPIRATION
On Sunday, June 2 at 3:00 PM, the artists of Baltimore Musicales will present “The Voices of Time” at the War Memorial, 101 N. Gay St. in Baltimore. Sopranos Claire Galloway and Thea Tullman Moore, mezzo-soprano Elise Christina Jenkins, baritone Jason Widney, and pianist Andrew Stewart will explore universal themes that connect poet, artist, and listener throughout time: love and loss, connection to nature, and spirituality. Works by living composers will be paired with those by past artists who have provided inspiration or who have shared a common passion.
Music will include songs by prominent African-American composers H. Leslie Adams, Florence Beatrice Price, and Jasmine Barnes, who is a product of the Baltimore City public school system and a graduate of Morgan State University. Other contemporary artists include Baltimore-based composers Joshua Fishbein and Garth Baxter, as well as Frances Pollock, Libby Larsen, Juliana Hall, and Kurt Erickson. Works by Aaron Copland, Claude Debussy, Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Alma Mahler, Johannes Brahms, and Herbert Howells will complete the program. A reception with the artists will follow.
General Admission: $20, Students/Seniors: $15. Free admission for veterans. Tickets are available online at www.baltimoremusicales.org or at the door.
Convenient parking is available at the Baltimore Street Garage, 15 Guilford Avenue. There is also limited handicapped parking adjacent to the War Memorial on Lexington Avenue.
