Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts: An Exciting Future in the Making (E-95)


In 1978, people wondered what to do with the old Annapolis High School.  Over the next 40 years, that historic building became a hub for the arts scene in Anne Arundel County. With the vision and leadership of Linnell Bowen, operas, ballets, and symphonies were attracted to Annapolis.  After a giant renovation, Bowen passed the torch to Margaret Davis late last year in a most exciting time.

Davis is charged with continuing a legacy and leading Maryland Hall into the future. She has ideas, she has hit the ground running (she also is taking adult ballet at Maryland Hall but did not seem keen to talk too much about that), and the future is so exciting.

Listen in as we talk about the past, the present and the future of Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts.

And, if you have not visited Maryland Hall recently…make some time this weekend to head over and take a peek at the galleries, the classrooms, the outdoor murals and art, the expansion, the renovation of the main theater, and the construction of the Bowen Theater on the lower level. Grab a snack at the cafe operated by students from AACPS’s CAT-South Culinary program.  There’s so much more than the regal facade of our old high school.

CRABCAKE: A Few Moments with Chris Smither (June 2018)

  • This is a Crabcake from The Maryland Crabs!  What is a Crabcake? Well, it’s a very short snippet of something you need to know. It might be 5 minutes long..or it might be 20.  In any event, enjoy your Maryland Crabcake!It’s a fantastic treat to talk to someone who has been making music for more than 50 years. It gets even better when they have had the success and acclaim of Chris Smither!

    Called “my Eric Clapton” by Bonnie Raitt, Smither has been a force in the music scene since 1960 when he and a friend won a Battle of the Bands in New Orleans. And will soon be in Annapolis playing the Rams Head On Stage in support of his 18th album (he admits he lost count) “Call Me Lucky”.  Have a listen and welcome to Annapolis.
