The Sunday afternoon Tiffany Series presents diverse musical programs and notable speakers on issues of importance to the community. The series is named for the unparalleled collection of 11 original Tiffany stained glass windows in Brown Memorial’s stunning sanctuary, with its high-vaulted ceiling and superb acoustics.
All proceeds from the Tiffany concerts support the church’s mission work in Baltimore and beyond. Read more about the recently established Tiffany Mission Dream Fund and its first recipients.
Typically, each Tiffany Series season includes a choral concert featuring Brown’s Chancel Choir and soloists, and an organ recital showcasing the church’s renowned 1930 Skinner organ. Guest organists have included Marie-Louise Langlais and Frederick Swann. James David Christie will present a recital in 2017.
Tiffany series musical programs have also included brass concerts, handbell festivals, classical musicians and singers, bluegrass and folk and steel drum musicians and gospel choirs.
Past speakers have included Congressman Elijah Cummings, Harry Belafonte, Children’s Defense Fund Founder and President Marian Wright Edelman, peace activist Liz McAlister, Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Episcopal bishop, and “House of Cards” showrunner Beau Willimon.
The Tiffany Series season features four to five programs a year in the fall, winter and spring. Keep up-to-date on all upcoming events by joining the Tiffany Series email list, or you can request to have information sent to you in the mail by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
