Faith in the Future – How the Baltimore Concert Opera is Coping with Coronavirus

0

Small businesses and non-profits are especially hard hit during the coronavirus outbreak. We get it! Baltimore Fishbowl is a small business, too. To help small businesses and non-profits, we will provide regular updates to let you know how they are coping. 

The following is an update from Julia Cooke, Artistic and General Director of Baltimore Concert Opera, on how they are adapting and coping during these times.

How have you altered your business to adapt to the quarantine?
We sadly had to fully cancel our final concert opera production of this season, and have postponed two other concerts as well as our major annual fundraising event. However, our staff must continue to work (remotely of course,) maintaining operations and focusing on how to navigate through this unprecedented time as a performing arts organization.

Are you doing something for the community or your employees that you want to share with our readers?
Absolutely — we want to stay connected to our wonderful community while our live productions are temporarily paused. We are digging into our audio archives to create “BCO Moments of Beauty” from several past productions, all with the blessing of the wonderful artists who performed those moments. We are sharing this series of clips via our social media channels, and as a collection on our website which will be added to weekly at http://www.baltimoreconcertopera.com/bco-blog

BALTIMORE CHAMBER JAZZ SOCIETY HOSTS GRAMMY NOMINATED JAZZ VOCALIST CATHERINE RUSSELL IN CONCERT

0

The Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society hosts recent Grammy nominated jazz vocalist Catherine Russell in concert Sunday, March 1, 2020 at 5pm. The concert will take place at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Enjoy an evening of jazz and purchase your tickets today. For more information, please visit baltimorechamberjazz.org.

With her recent GRAMMY nomination for Best Jazz Vocal Album, Alone Together, Russell solidifies her reputation as one of the greatest interpreters and performers of American Popular Song. She is a rare talent, a genuine jazz and blues vocalist who can sing virtually anything. Her repertoire features gems from the 1920s through the present—vital interpretations, bursting with soul and humor.

According to JazzWeek, which announced Russell’s recent album was #1 on its 2019 Year End Jazz Chart, “Alone Together offers a welcome reminder that there’s no one else in jazz doing what [Catherine] does, and that the scene would be immeasurably poorer without her.”
