The mission of Shriver Hall Concert Series (SHCS) is to foster and maintain an organization dedicated to the making of music consonant with the highest aspirations of musical art, creating performances, and providing educational and training programs at the highest level of excellence.


Chair's Welcome

We are thrilled to be celebrating the 50th season of Shriver Hall Concert Series. Since its inception in 1966, SHCS has become one of the premier venues of outstanding chamber music in the country. It is hard to imagine when Johns Hopkins pharmacologist Ernest Bueding initiated the Series, after having successes with earlier versions in Louisiana and Ohio, that he and the original subscribers (some of whom are still subscribing!) envisioned it would reach such greatness.

This year, we are honoring our history with a “Born in Baltimore” theme. Three specially-commissioned works from composers with Baltimore connections will be performed. We thank James Lee III, an Associate Professor at Morgan State University, Jonathan Leshnoff, a Towson University professor, and Timo Andres, with family in Baltimore, for working so closely with us and with the performers who will showcase their compositions.

We are also very excited to be starting our next 50 years with a new Executive Director, Catherine Cochran, who comes to us from the 92nd Street Y in New York where she has worked for the past 14 years. Most recently, Catherine was Executive Producer for New Initiatives and Director of Music Programming. Please say hello, introduce yourself, and give her a friendly Baltimore welcome.

Finally, a special thanks to you, our subscribers, and to those who support us. In particular, I would like to thank those who helped to commission the new works being performed this season, Kenneth Greif, Barbara and David Kornblatt, and Sol Snyder. We appreciate the commitment everyone has made to great music and continues to make each year by subscribing and donating to Shriver Hall. Whether this is your first or your 400th Shriver Hall concert, please get to know those around you. Chamber music is an intimate listening experience and we want to make your time here warm and inviting.

Thank you for being an attentive and appreciative audience these past 50 years. We look forward to sharing the next half-century of beautiful music with you.

Geoffrey Greif, Board Chair
