We hear much these days about the need for enterprising young innovators, ready to start from scratch and create successful new ventures especially regarding the supposed decline of classical music. Could it be that we have those elements right here in Baltimore City? Even in Federal Hill? Well, that is what the Federal Hill Parlor Series aims to do by promoting Baltimore musicians and composers in innovative collaborations and interesting venues. By creating fresh perspectives on what a live musical experience can be, we are reinventing the way our guests relate to live performance. We would like to invite you to the Federal Hill Parlor Series' January Open House: the enormity of small things.This event will feature short works by 20th/21st century composers for voice and violin.
This Open House, taking place in the Jordan Faye Contemporary Gallery, is a refreshing way to enjoy classical music. There will be champagne/wine and light hors d'oeuvres included with the performance.
