Additional photos from the February 9th performance are on display below. 

How CPC got its start

In February 1977, Frances Motyca Dawson founded Columbia Pro Cantare as a professionally trained volunteer chorus to sing with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at its Howard County concerts. When the BSO moved its outdoor venue to another county, CPC struck out on its own, presenting high quality performances of choral masterpieces to receptive local audiences.

Throughout its 36-year history, CPC has earned praise for its compelling performances of a broad range of choral works. In addition to choral classics by masters like Handel, Mozart, and Brahms, CPC has presented concerts that feature the contributions of diverse cultures to the vocal repertoire, including programs of Czech, Polish, and Latin-American works, spirituals, folk music, jazz, and more than a dozen world premieres.

CPC has not only enriched the lives of our audiences over the years, it has served as a creative outlet for the many talented singers who reside in the area.

Ensure that ticket prices stay affordable for families and seniors

Expand efforts to touch the next generation of Howard County residents with the beauty, passion, and power of great choral music.
