The Baltimore Choral Arts Society is a nonprofit arts organization, which relies on the encouragement and support of the community to sustain the high level of our performances, broadcasts, and educational programming.
We invite you to become part of our vibrant organization by contributing to our growth and success.
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.
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 Program—our Legacy Circle is becoming the core of our future. Planned gifts can be advantageous to both donor and beneficiary: they may save taxes and allow a higher income to the donor or larger gifts to heirs. Please consider a planned gift to BCAS in your financial and retirement planning.
Please contact Executive Director Linda Moxley at 410-523-7070 for information on any of these opportunities.
We would welcome your tax-deductible gift, sent to:
Baltimore Choral Arts Society

You may also make your tax-deductible gift online.

Reading Symphony Music Director Andrew Constantine leads his orchestra and the Baltimore Choral Arts Chorus in the opening concert of the season. The program includes Dark Bells by composer Jonathan Leshnoff, a cantata inspired by the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe, featuring Baltimore Symphony violist Peter Minkler. The concert also features Brahms’ Tragic Overture and Schicksalslied, and Vaughan Williams’ Flos Campi. After the concert, Tom Hall will lead a discussion with the artists.
Many thanks to our Presenting Sponsor T. Rowe Price for their generous support.
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.
