St. maries musica
"Where words fail, music speaks"
-Hans Christian Andersen
Our spring and Christmas concert seasons bring choral entertainment to Southern Maryland and beyond. We specialize in madrigal and other historic choral styles. However, we sing a wide variety of musical styles from "today" and "yesteryear".
Christmas - December is filled with our concerts - finds us in our Renaissance costumes, singing carols and seasonal music from several different time periods.
Spring (May of each year) - you'll see us dressed in "formal" attire. Generally our song selections are from the 20th century but we're known to toss in a few surprises. In 2012, Musica began the Festival Chorus, a non-auditioned choral group to join Musica in presenting major works that require a larger chorus for performances. A whole new musical arena has opened up for us.
Treat yourself and your family to a fun and memorable concert by our group of volunteer professional vocalists!
Nearly all of our concerts are open to the public and "free" - no admission fee. However, our final concert of each season is ticketed:
$10 for Adults
FREE for Students and Children
Here’s the schedule for our current concert season.
St. Maries Musica is also a nonprofit organization. And even though our singers volunteer their time and talents, we do have expenses. So we are most grateful to everyone who supports us with their financial donations.
THE ST. MARiES MUSICA CONCERT IN THE BRICK CHAPEL IN HISTORIC ST. MARY'S CITY WAS A GREAT SUCCESS. LOOK HERE FOR VIDEOS.
