Our 37th season continues
with our annual offering of
on Sunday, December 8, 2013, at
The Jim Rouse Theatre at Wilde Lake,
5460 Trumpeter Road, Columbia MD. The concert begins at 7:30 PM,
following a free lecture by Dr. Barbara Renton at 6:30 PM.
Returning as soloists are Amy van Roekel, soprano;
Mary Ann McCormick, mezzo soprano; Charles Reid, tenor; Lester
Lynch; baritone; and Henry Lowe, organist with the Festival Orchestra -
all under the direction of Frances Motyca Dawson, CPC's founder and
Artistic Director. A reception will follow the concert. The chorus'
mastery of Handel’s unique music, a quartet of world-class soloists,
professional orchestra, and an accessible venue annually attracts
audience members from throughout the region.
A bit more about the soloists and their Howard
County audiences. One of the rarely mentioned qualities of the CPC is
its effectiveness in finding and developing performers, not only
as chorus members but as professional singers. Our Messiah
soloists have been coming back year after year, developing a warm and
enduring relationship and following with the audiences they find here.
It's good for the performers, the chorus members, and also for the
audiences, who benefit both from participating in the development of the
soloists over the years and in their own appreciation of the excellent
quality of the choral and solo performances.
