Music In The Valley brings world-class musicians to St. John’s Church. The concert series began in 2008 in partnership with Jonathan Carney, concertmaster of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, to fulfill a need for quality chamber music in this mostly rural area. Past performances have included classical music ensembles that have met with rave reviews. Each performance begins on a Sunday evening at 5:30 and is followed by a buffet/reception where concertgoers can mingle with the artists.
Reservations for each concert can be made by calling the church office at 410-429-4690 until noon on the Friday before the concert. Adult seats are $40 if purchased online or with advance reservations and $45 at the door. Student/child tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
