About the choir

The Emmanuel Choir is Maryland's premier professional liturgical choral ensemble.

A 16-voice fully-professional mixed-voice ensemble, its 12-member core is augmented by four Choral Scholars, each a local young artist. Rooted in the great and expansive choral traditions of the Anglican (Episcopal) Church, the Emmanuel Choir’s repertoire spans the centuries — from Italian Renaissance to English Romantic; from plainsong to the 21st century — and includes regular world-premiere performances of new music composed for the church of today and tomorrow. The choir is directed by Christian Lane.

About the venue

Emmanuel Episcopal Church is located in the heart of Baltimore's historic Mt. Vernon neighborhood. Its tremendous stone tower at the corner of Cathedral and W Read Streets serves as a beacon in this community, and the nave's warm acoustic and gentle ambiance contribute to creating an ideal environment in which to hear choral and chamber music.

In 2022, the church building undergoes a $2.8M transformation to make each space in its physical plant fully accessible to all; included in this project is an elevator, increased ramp access, and new restroom facilities. Please note that, until construction concludes in early 2023, the building currently has a reduced number of restrooms; additionally, access to both the performance space and existing restroom facilities requires navigation of some stairs.

Parking and Transportation

Paid parking is available in a lot directly adjacent to Emmanuel Church, with entrances on both N Charles and W Read Streets. More information about rates and location may be found here.

Numerous options for metered street parking, free street parking, and alternative parking lots may be found on the city blocks surrounding Emmanuel's building at 811 Cathedral Street.

The church is also served by local bus routes on both Cathedral and N Charles Streets, as well as the Charm City Circulator (Purple Route) and Baltimore LiteRail Link (Mt Vernon/Centre St Stop).
