Directed by Ryan Mullaney and Lyle Nordstrom, for over 10 years Mountainside Baroque has brought the engaging music of the Baroque, Renaissance and Classic eras to Cumberland through performances by fine musicians from across the country, who have given concerts that rival those heard at the nation’s major cities. Audiences have consistently grown in number, averaging around 200, a testament to the interest of music lovers in Western Maryland.
Mountainside Baroque is pleased to announce a return to live performance with its 2021-2022 season, “A Joyous Reunion | A Year of Festive Weekends.” In addition to the popular annual “Lessons and Carols” service in December, Mountainside will expand their offerings to include six concerts over three “Festival” weekends in, respectively, October, March and May. Patrons are encouraged to come for the entire weekend, taking in the concerts as well as the many other activities available in the tri-state area.
In 2021, the organization rounded off the partially cancelled 2019-2020 season with three streaming videos accessed via their website (www.mountainsidebaroque.org). The videos were viewed a total of over 1,000 times, and two of them, including the hour-long retrospective “Great Music, Again | 10 Years of Mountainside Baroque,” are still available.
We have an all-volunteer staff at this point in time.
