Festival Baltimore is a classical music festival created to share the unique experience of hearing collections of works of the greatest classical composers of the past and present in their entirety. It is a rare opportunity to hear the complete works for a particular chamber ensemble or solo instrument within one night performed by the same artist. Our festival provides a sequence of such nights with a wide range of styles and types of works, along with an opportunity for young aspiring students to work on and perform one of them.
The 2019 Festival features full cycles or one-of-a-kind works by composers of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries: Beethoven, Prokofiev, Hindemith, Alkan, Shostakovich, Liszt, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Martinu, Milhaud, and more.
Each concert focuses on one specific genre - the sonata, the piano trio, the art song; or specific instrumentation - violin and piano, piano or viola solo, or piano trio.
Guests of Festival Baltimore will learn about composers through observing a composer's development within a given genre. Don't miss a chance to embrace a musician's lifetime in one concert!
Festival Baltimore is made possible through partnership between Music for Minds, Inc. and the Music Department at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. All proceeds from concerts and tuition go towards Music for Minds' community projects and future festivals.
We offer free admission to all concerts to individuals 18 years old and under!
