Music at Grace Concert Series

Two exceptional chamber music concerts from Baltimore Symphony Orchestra are coming up!

On Saturday, Nov. 16 at 1:30 pm, a string quartet chamber group will perform. Our own Carolyn Young, Director of Children’s Ministries, has organized this concert to recognize hospice/palliative care patients and their volunteers; November is National Hospice/Palliative Care and Caregiver’s Month. Hospice Volunteer Coordinators from Professional Healthcare Resources will recognize hospice patients, caregivers and volunteers at the concert. Light refreshments will follow the concert. There is no admission fee, and all are welcome to attend.

Then on Sunday, Dec 1 at 3:00 pm, another chamber group will perform. Percussionist Brian Prechtl has written musical settings of several of Walt Whitman’s poems in recognition of the 200th anniversary of the birth of this beloved American poet. Brian, along with Colin Sorgi, viola; Darius Skoraczewski, cello and Michael Sheppard, piano, will perform “A Child Said – What is Grass?” with WBJC’s Judy Krummeck as narrator, along with other selections. A free-will offering at this concert will benefit the Musicians’ Fund which helps the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra players during times of lockouts and strikes. All are welcome to attend this concert.

Our Music at Grace Concert Series presents exceptional music for the enjoyment of our church family and the Baltimore community. Most of our events are free, and several of our concerts are ticketed events. All these groups are highly respected and talented musicians who want to share their music in our wonderful space. We are grateful for your attendance at these concerts whenever they fit into your busy work and family life.
