Live Arts Maryland’s “QuaranTiny Concerts” are quick, informal performances, recorded in one or two takes. They will not have benefited from a lot of rehearsal and so may not be perfect, almost like impromptu studio recordings. And sometimes we reach back into our library of past live performances. Regardless, these “tiny concerts” present an opportunity for us to explore some interesting aspects of the music that we love. The programs feature performers from Live Arts Maryland’s Mainstage, Thursdays@St. Anne’s, and Bach+ series. We’ll continue to add to the “tiny concert” performances each day while performance venues are closed. Mostly – we’re having fun and hope that you will enjoy these, too.
Music at St. Anne’s
St. Anne’s Concert Series
St. Anne’s Church is known for its exemplary music program and this free concert series is a big part of it. There are two separate programs–one in the spring and one in the fall. Through this series, we bring to Annapolis the best musicians in the region. The church itself boasts the finest acoustics in the area as well as one of the finest pipe organs. So, if you like music – music of all kinds – join us!
All Thursday Concerts begin at 6:15 PM at St. Anne’s Church (Church Circle, Annapolis).
No tickets required for these special nights! Come as you are, pay as you can.
Under the direction of conductor, J. Ernest Green, our Adult Choir is composed of over 50 members. The Adult Choir provides most of the music for our 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM worship services. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7:30 PM in the Skylight Room of the Parish House. For more information, contact Ernie Green.

This group is a collection of instrumentalist, including strings, winds and percussion that range from amateur to professional and beginners to lifetime musicians under the direction of Kari Shea.

A brass choir meets regularly and a string trio meets at arranged times. Other groups are formed for specific performances and as the need arises.
