Tiffany Series

The 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.

Upcoming Concert 

The Tiffany Series will present a spectacular Holiday Brass and Organ Concert on Sunday, December 11, 2022 at 7 pm. This event features a quintet of top-notch brass musicians from the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra together with esteemed organist Marvin Mills. They will perform a program of festive Baroque holiday music and, in the second half, Christmas favorites — perfect for the whole family!

The BSO Brass musicians are Andrew Balio, Principal Trumpet; Matthew Barker, trumpet; Beth Graham, horn; Jeremy Buckler, trombone; and Aubrey Foard, Principal Tuba.  

Marvin Mills is organist at St.Paul’s United Methodist Church in Kensington, MD, and has performed throughout the country, including with the Pittsburgh Symphony and the Johns Hopkins Symphony.  Highly sought after as a choral accompanist, he has performed with the Washington Bach Consort, the Cathedral Choral Society, and the Folger Consort among many others. 

This program is being presented in memory of Michael Britt, Brown Memorial’s recently deceased and much loved Minister of Music. Britt was the organist in three previous Tiffany Series Brass and Organ Concerts, and the musicians requested that he be honored with this concert.

Tickets are $20 at the door. Students get free admission. For more information, please call 410-523-1542.
