Music in Your Community

Music in Your Community

The importance of music is its power to transcend time, emotion, culture, and language as we connect with others. Music's power connects us across the barriers of time, culture, and language.

February 4, 7:30pm
The Black Mountain Male Chorus of Wales has made a considerable impact on the Concert Circuit in the four corners of the U.S. with nearly 200 appearances to great critical acclaim - one has to go back as far as 1893 to find a similar Welsh Choral achievement! Compared to traditional Welsh Choirs, this group has the average age of just 30, with members drawn from all over Wales. Having the honor of Bryn Terfel, the world-renowned Bass- Baritone as its Patron, gives the singers a great performer to try to emulate! The wonderful reputation of the Welsh as a 'Nation of Singers' is obviously exemplified in this group - but there is more...much more. They are performing at The Maryland Theatre (21-27 South Potomac Street) in Hagerstown. Call 301-790-3500 or 301-790-2000 or visit www.mdtheatre.org for more information.
