Guest Artist Series

For the past several years we have been hosting a series of guest artists to come and perform for our community. This serves our Fine Arts Diploma Endorsement Program as their series of Colloquia that they need to attend per year. We also do it to provide wonderful arts events for our community. Each evening will consist of a performance or discussion, followed by a question and answer period for our community.

You are invited to each of these evenings. Mark Your Calendars. Schedule will be updated below throughout the year. We hope you can take advantage of these great opportunities.

FADE Colloquium #1 - Lyric Brass Quintet
FADE Students: Our first colloquium, The Lyric Brass Quintet, will be this Wednesday, October 29th from 7:00 pm to 8:15 pm in the Fine Arts Theater. Please bring your FADE binders. All members of the community are welcome to attend.
The Lyric Brass are musical artisans and storytellers who craft original and immersive concert experiences for their audiences. Comprised of some of the finest professional musicians in the Baltimore/Washington DC area, the individual members of the Lyric Brass are on faculty at the Peabody Institute, members of the premier service bands, top freelance musicians and members of the American Studio Orchestra. Using visuals, multimedia, and an abundance of brass élan, the Lyric Brass present original and unique concept performances that transports audiences and leaves them breathless.

Plan to join us for all of the FADE Colloquia!

Mark your calendars.

Open to the community unless otherwise stated.
