Choral Conversations

Tom Hall
At our concerts that are designated Choral Conversation Concerts, Music Director Tom Hall introduces the music on the program, in an easy, casual, informative way. Knowing something about what the composers are trying to achieve helps us to understand and appreciate the music, and enhance our enjoyment. Sometimes Mr. Hall speaks during the concert, and sometimes he leads discussions before or after the program.



The French Connection

Sunday, November 01, 2015
3:00 PM • Kraushaar Auditorium

Baltimore Choral Arts opens its 50th Anniversary season with The French Connection, featuring the extraordinary Requiems of Fauré and Duruflé, widely regarded as two of the most beloved choral masterpieces ever written.  Both works are mesmerizing and ethereal, with whisper-soft sections highlighted by the full blazing sound of the chorus and orchestra. 

Don’t miss the opportunity to join us for this sensational performance and exciting season opener as Music Director Tom Hall leads the full chorus and orchestra in The French Connection.

Reserved Seating.

T. Rowe Price is the Presenting Sponsor of The French Connection.


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.
