Baltimore's music scene deserves some celebration. That's why we dedicated our May issue entirely to covering some of the most exceptional local musicians, who create the soundtrack of this city. And since you can't have a Music issue without a party, why not throw a big one?
Join Baltimore magazine and UNION Craft Brewing at the brand-new Union Collective on September 22 for our first-ever Music Festival, featuring a lineup you won't want to miss:
• TT THE ARTIST
• Cris Jacobs
• NATURAL VELVET
• DJ James Nasty
A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Believe In Music, supporting the nonprofit’s vision to transform Baltimore's children into advocates for their community by providing a platform for them to tell their own stories.

The 2018-2019 music series at St David's opens with a festival Recital and Evensong for the feast of Hildegard von Bingen, featuring OUTCALLS as the opening recitalists.
Celebrating the first documented composer in the Western canon, this afternoon of music brings to life the majesty and the mystery of Hildegard's potent music. The Choir of St. David's is joined by Britt Olsen-Ecker and Melissa Wimbish of the Indy-Opera-Rock band OUTCALLS, performing music of their own composition as well as chants of Hildegard von Bingen durign the recital, which begins at 4:30.
Beginning at 5:00 the Choir of St David's leads the Service of Evensong, an all-musical service that allows for a mystical evening experience. The music includes the world premiere of 2017-2018 Composer-in-Residence Faye Chiao's Preces and Responses, as well as the U.S. premiere of two movements from Kerry Andrew's "dusk songs," closing with an organ postlude by Bjork.
The event is free an open to the public. A suggested donation benefits the artists and the music series.

How many times have you listened to these songs in the car or watched these movies at home? We’ve asked two of Baltimore’s best bands, Outcalls and Black Root Underground (Jamaal from Baby Beats and his band) to learn the songs from “Frozen” and “Moana,” and play them from start to finish in the Baltimore School for the Arts’ gorgeous, historic Schaefer ballroom!
This show is a partnership between WTMD and the BSA, and we’re thrilled to have students from the BSA’s music program joining Outcalls and Black Root Underground on stage. Everyone is encouraged to dress like their favorite character from these films.
