About Bach In Baltimore

panorama

Bach In Baltimore’s mission is to perform, free to the public, 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 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. Six of our nine concerts are absolutely free to the public, even with the high costs associated with organizing them and paying our musicians and featured soloists. No other music organization in the Greater Baltimore area provides a season of free choral music concerts.
