Concert & Lecture Series

Annapolis, Maryland

The Élan Concert & Lecture Series hosts musicians and scholars who bring to life historical performance with an elegant flair. Our goal is to present music in its historical context as an illuminating, inspiring and soul-refreshing tonic for modern times.

Bespoke Programing

In our programming, the music intersects with the art, culture, philosophy and politics of past eras. Our thematic concerts are enhanced by the humanities to create a sensory and musically transformational experience.
