March will come roaring in like a lion with a trio of lively instrumental works by Bach, Handel, and Mozart. The concert opens with Bach's Cantata 112: Der Herr ist mein Getreuer Hirt (The Lord is my faithful Shepherd), featuring several of our talented "Emerging Artists." The program also includes Handel's enchanting Water Music, Suite No. 1. When it was first performed on the River Thames for King George I, Londoners covered the river in boats and barges to experience Handel's newest work with the king. King George I was so pleased with the composition, he had his orchestra repeat it three times. The concert concludes with Mozart's virtuosic Bassoon Concerto, featuring soloist Terry B. Ewell. Mozart's composition is the most celebrated work in the whole bassoon repertory. This concert will leave you revitalized and ready for the dawn of spring.

About Bach in Baltimore

Bach in Baltimore’s mission is to perform the choral and instrumental works of Johann Sebastian Bach (and his contemporaries) and to educate the concert-going public about the musical language of Bach and the texts he chose to set to music.

We strive each month to present these works in a historically informed way that will enrich the lives of our audience members and inspire creativity. We wish to foster an appreciation for the arts, particularly for Baroque music, within the entire community. We are committed to providing educational experiences for people of all ages in order to instill a lifelong connection Bach’s music.
