Gilbert & Sullivan BaltiQWERT #16

BaltiQWERT #16

Gilbert & Sullivan Sing

Baltimore, Maryland

March 30, 2019 

The works of W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan (known as “G&S”) have been popular in the English-speaking (and singing) world since the initial collaboration of the two in 1871. Generations of families, professionals, and theater-lovers have performed the G&S comic operas, and there have been several popular movies based on them, most recently “Topsy-Turvy."


BaltiQWERT #16


A "QWERT" is where G&S fans gather and sing through some or all of the operas, with scores in hand, to piano accompaniment. There’s no staging, and none of the dialogue is done, so each opera doesn’t take all that long. It's fun, fun, fun!

We have been offering these for years in Baltimore — therefore the function is called a BaltiQWERT! And this Saturday is the 16th BaltiQWERT



About 50 singers from all over the eastern United States are participating this time. Some are brand new to G&S; some have been performing G&S for DECADES; some are amateurs and others are professionals — but all are looking forward to a wonderfully fulfilling day. 

Best of all, anyone who wants to experience this is very welcome to attend and watch — it’s informal; there is no admission fee and plenty of comfortable seating!

A Closing But No TOO LATE Sign

All In One Little Device

Twenty Four Hours With A Broken Phone
Did not think it possible but I went a full twenty four hours without the complete use of my phone. And it was not by choice. Who knows why a perfectly good phone works and then in a matter of minutes it doesn't? Who cares why it wasn't working? … more

Make sure the seller can afford to sell.
When it comes to pricing a house we need to look at comps. How many are on the market, how many are under contract and how many have sold in the last 6 months. That's in the ideal world where there is a lot of activity. When it comes to listing… more
