Featuring Sopranos Claire Galloway and Thea Tullman Moore, mezzo-soprano Elise Christina Jenkins, baritone Jason Widney, and pianist Andrew Stewart, Baltimore Musicales is a not-for-profit arts organization dedicated to preserving the art of the song recital. Its professional singers and instrumentalists perform repertoire ranging from operatic arias and ensembles to art songs and musical theater. Concerts are set in the intimate venue in the Roland Park neighborhood of Baltimore, we break the traditional boundaries between concert-goers and performers. Singers share the meanings behind poetry and librettos, biographical information about the composers, and historical and literary contexts, allowing listeners to form deeper and more personal connections to the music.
