About Us

Bach In Baltimore was founded in 1988 to give a monthly concert series presenting the works of Johann Sebastian Bach and other Baroque composers. Bach In Baltimore has the Maryland premier of dozens of works of music - including some J. S. Bach cantatas! The original ensemble of 16 gifted, avocational singers now numbers 50! Distinguished soloists and professional instrumentalists accompany the choir for subscription concerts. The ‘First Sunday Concert Series’ is in its 30th year, and has been joined by 10 additional concerts offered in Maryland & Pennsylvania.
BIB is doing its part to nurture and preserve the great cultural legacy of Baroque music. In 2008, the choir started an educational outreach program and youth choirs now regularly attend and perform in the ‘First Sunday Concert Series.’ The maestro visits schools and community choirs offering insights into the music. Sharing the stage, the many musicians affiliated with Bach In Baltimore take great joy in bringing this body of music to life for the entire community. Join Bach In Baltimore. Contribute here.
