Masterworks Moments

Baltimore Choral Arts Society presents a new virtual community singing series titled Masterworks Moments. This series is curated to stay connected and musically engaged with the community, using the joy of choral music to unify and inspire. This is a free and open community series inviting both singers and spectators.
Music Director Anthony Blake Clark and Associate Conductor Leo Wanenchak will rehearse great choral works on Zoom with the general public. They will point out intricacies of different moments in choral music and help illuminate unique challenges of different masterworks. Participants will then sing these masterworks together. 
During the session, each participant’s audio will be muted, singing along to the music with the instruction and accompaniment provided by Blake Clark and Leo Wanenchak. There will then be a Q&A session with the two to further discuss the music. The next Masterworks Moments session will be held on Monday, June 22, 2020 at 7:30 pm EDT. This session will focus on the works of Bruckner, Boulanger, Purcell, and more. Materials COMING SOON!

The music continues


In times of uncertainty, we often turn to the arts for solace and expression. Choral Arts aims to help our community heal through music during these trying times. To that end, we have launched several new initiatives to keep our singers and audiences connected, such as Music with the Maestro and Masterworks Moments.

These free programs are supported by the generosity of many. If you are compelled to support our efforts, please visit our giving page. Thank you!
