Next Concert

Columbia Pro Cantare's 39th season opens on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at 8 pm at the Jim Rouse Theatre in Columbia with "Northern Lights."

This will be a rare opportunity to hear the choral gems of composers of northern Europe who are most often met only in their larger works and whose 150th anniversaries are celebrated this year: Jean Sibelius (Finland), Carl Nielsen (Denmark) and Alexander Glazunov (Russia). These are joined by other "northern lights": Edvard Grieg (Norway), Wilhelm Stenhammar (Sweden) and those who were celebrated in their time but whose PR hasn't kept up: Johan Roman (Sweden) and Dietrich Buxtehude (Denmark) who was greatly admired by J. S. Bach. You can't get this music to full effect on the internet or CD!
