Children’s Chorus of Carroll County to perform, May 5
Bach in Baltimore announced its Cherished Music of John Rutter Concert on Sunday, May 5 at 4 p.m. at the First Evangelical Lutheran Church, located at 3604 Chatham Road in Ellicott City.
According to the news release, Bach in Baltimore is thrilled to join forces with the award-winning Children’s Chorus of Carroll County to perform treasured choral music from the world’s most popular living composer, John Rutter.
Under the direction of Jenna Lebherz Daly and Rachel Morgan Im, Children’s Chorus of Carroll County’s Cantare Bel Canto choir is comprised of about 70 young choristers from 6th to 12th grade. The ensemble has been working on Rutter’s “Mass of the Children” since September 2018.
“This piece is very complex and creative and I am honored to be able to perform it,” Logan Saurborn, a chorus member since 2011, is quoted as saying in the release.
Children’s Chorus of Carroll County is able to collaborate with Bach in Baltimore thanks to Bach in Baltimore’s Student Exchange Choir program, one of the largest music education programs in Maryland, which gives student choirs the experience of performing alongside an adult choir, full orchestra, and professional vocal soloists, “an experience that many young musicians do not receive before college,” Daly said.
