Tom Hall Endowment Fund
To acknowledge and celebrate Tom Hall’s immeasurable contributions to Baltimore Choral Arts during his 35 years as Music Director, we are excited to announce the establishment of a special fund in honor of Tom Hall as a part of our Endowment.
As we celebrate Tom Hall’s extraordinary years as Music Director of Baltimore Choral Arts, the Choral Arts Board is recognizing him by establishing a special fund in Tom’s honor as part of the Baltimore Choral Arts Endowment. The establishment of this fund is a way to grow the endowment, ensuring the continued success of Baltimore Choral Arts long into the future, and is a way to celebrate and recognize Tom Hall’s many contributions to this organization.
Tom Hall is one of the most highly regarded performers in choral music. Over 1 million viewers have enjoyed the annual “Christmas with Choral Arts” television broadcast which has been popular for 20 years, and which the WMAR-TV broadcast received an Emmy for in 2006.
Tom has added more than 200 new works to the Choral Arts repertoire, and he has commissioned and premiered works by internationally acclaimed composers including Peter Schickele, Libby Larsen, James Lee III, Rosephanye Dunn Powell, Ysaye Barnwell, and others.
During his time with Baltimore Choral Arts, Tom has had a strong commitment to outreach, bringing Choral Arts performances to venues around the state, from schools to churches, synagogues, and retirement communities.
A strong proponent of education and nurturing young talent, Tom launched the Student Composer Project in 1990, giving young high school and college student composers the opportunity to hear their works performed by a professional chorus, receive a recording of their work, and work with a mentor.
This fund will ensure that Tom’s legacy of bringing exceptional choral performances to concert halls and out into the community, as well as inspiring young children and students, will continue in perpetuity.
About the Endowment
The Endowment was established by the Baltimore Choral Arts Board in 2002. The revenues from the Endowment Fund serve as a safety net for the organization from the up and down cycles of the economy. The endowment helps keep the quality and quantity of our programming consistent and exceptional.

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.
