Baltimore Classical Guitar Society presents Lukasz Kuropaczewski

Prices for Members start at $30

Guitarist Lukasz Kuropaczewski is well on his way to becoming a major figure on the worldwide classical music scene. Born in 1981 in the small Polish town of Gniezno, Łukasz began studying guitar at the age of ten. Upon receiving a Master’s degree from the Academy of Music in Wroclaw, Poland, he traveled to the United States on a full scholarship to study with Maestro Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University, where he was awarded an Artist Diploma in 2008. During this time, he made his New York debut at Carnegie Recital Hall as the recipient of the “Solomon H. Snyder Award,” and launched his international concert career, demonstrating his remarkable passion and precision to enthusiastic audiences.


MAR 6 · 5:00pm–7:00pm

Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society 2016 Concert Series

Prices for Members start at $38

Drummer Antonio Sanchez has spent 15 years as a sideman with guitarist Pat Metheny, but now he has fully arrived as an ambitious, gifted leader. Sanchez was featured in the July 2015 issue of Downbeat discussing his current time in the spotlight due to the international acclaim and multiple awards received from his score for the 2014 film Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). His upcoming release with Migration, The Meridian Suite pushes his compositional skills in a way that no other project has done before. “The result is a masterwork that strikes a balance between intellectualism and accessibility—with occasional bursts of controlled chaos to make the proceedings even more interesting.” (Downbeat)


MAR 26 · 2:00pm–3:30pm

Member Studio: Family Art Classes

Members only.

The Museum's teaching artists will provide in-depth instruction as they explain how to paint portraits.

APR 3 · 5:00pm–7:00pm

Baltimore Chamber Jazz Society 2016 Concert Series

Prices for Members start at $33

Orrin Evans has been recognized as one of the most inventive pianists of his generation. Evans is that rare musical force – a composer, pianist, bandleader, teacher, producer and arranger. Evans uses his musical influences to create an art experience comprised of American Songbook, spirituals, iconic jazz repertoire pieces by colleagues, plus his originals. Always pushing the boundaries of music – even questioning what it’s called – Evans attracts other brilliant, progressive musicians with a sound and style like no one else. Through 25 albums as a leader and co-leader, including his neo-soul/acid jazz ensemble Luv Park and the bracing collective trio Tarbaby, Evans has always followed a vigorously individual path.
