Make a Donation
The Baltimore Choral Arts Society is a nonprofit arts organization, which relies on the encouragement and support of the community to sustain our performances, broadcasts, and educational programming.
We invite you to become part of our vibrant organization by participating in our growth and success with a financial contribution.
Ways to Contribute
Annual Fund - ticket revenues only cover up to 40% of the costs of a concert. Gifts to our Annual Fund are essential to our performances.
Fund for Artistic Excellence - in recognition of Music Director Tom Hall's extraordinary accomplishments, members of the Baltimore Choral Arts Board established this fund to provide for the engagement of special guest artists and programming enhancements at Choral Arts concerts.
Endowment Fund - the up and down cycles of the economy would have a much greater effect on our programs without the safety net of our endowment fund revenues. They help to keep the quality and quantity consistently excellent.
Sponsorship - a major portion of the operational costs of specific subscription concerts, school performances, and community outreach events are underwritten by sponsors, and we are delighted to recognize them accordingly.
Planned Giving/Legacy Circle - A legacy gift may be as simple as naming Baltimore Choral Arts Society as a beneficiary in your will or in your IRA. Or you may want to make use of a planned giving program which can be advantageous to both donor and Choral Arts. We would be delighted to provide you with information about ways you can make a legacy gift to Baltimore Choral Arts.
Please contact Executive Director Linda Moxley at 410-523-7070 for information on any of these opportunities.

7:30 PM • Kraushaar Auditorium
Back by popular demand! Music Director Tom Hall leads the Chorus, Orchestra, and YOU the audience in the magnificent choruses of Handel's “Messiah.” Enjoy the surround-sound of this exhilarating experience. Tom Hall will be your musical coach and whimsical guide. No experience necessary! Bring your own musical score or purchase one at the concert.
The concert will be performed in Kraushaar Auditorium at Goucher College, 1021 Dulaney Valley Road in Towson. Parking is free.
PLEASE NOTE: Subscribers to the Choral Arts 3-concert season will receive a FREE ticket to this concert for every subscription you purchase!
This performance will include the following choruses:
- And the Glory of the Lord
- And He Shall Purify
- O Thou, That Tellest Good Tidings
- For Unto Us a Child is Born
- Glory to God
- His Yoke is Easy
- Behold the Lamb of God
- Surely He Hath Born Our Griefs
- And with His Stripes
- All We Like Sheep
- Lift Up Your Heads
- The Lord Gave the Word
- Since by Man Came Death
- Worthy is the Lamb
The voices rang out with resplendent confidence, and the sopranos had no apparent difficulty reaching the cruel and challenging high B's in the piece. The chorus's performance was the best part of the concert….the thunderous power of this unique masterpiece never fails to stir the blood, and the ovation was loud, long and well deserved.
