About Bach In Baltimore
Bach In Baltimore’s mission is to perform the choral works of Johann Sebastian Bach (and his contemporaries), and to educate the concert-going public about the musical language of Bach and the
texts he chose to set to music.
Bach In Baltimore performs its concerts at Christ Lutheran Church, Zion Church, City of Baltimore and other area churches at 4PM on the first Sunday of the month, October through June (we have dubbed our events “First Sunday Concerts” for this reason). Bach In Baltimore’s concert program is unique: the audience hears the beautiful music of Bach and also discovers what makes it so brilliant. Music Director and founder T. Herbert Dimmock begins each concert with a live demonstration and explanation – using orchestra and vocalists – of Bach’s musical language in the cantata to be performed. In 2015-2016 four of our ten concerts are absolutely free to the public, even with the high costs associated with organizing them and paying our musicians and featured soloists. Bach In Baltimore believes that the high cost of concert tickets should not prohibit large sections of the community from hearing live choral and orchestral music, so this organization aims to provide such concerts for free and at low costs for everyone!
