As a choral group, the Columbia Pro Cantare raises its voice in song, trying our best to communicate stories about the human condition, whether it’s about joy, love, hope, pain or sorrow. Today, we elevate our voice support of the protest pouring out from our cities and communities in response to the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and countless other Black Americans due to racial hatred, bigotry, and systemic practices that treat them less justly or humanely than other Americans.

It is now more important to sing loudly and unambiguously, screaming to the rafters that message that we must ALL TAKE A STAND AGAINST RACISM. It is not enough anymore to sit on the sidelines and simply acknowledge it. We must as one voice proclaim ourselves “ANTI RACISTS”. Stand and sing with us these songs which remind us of the universal human spirit and encourage us to pursue life, liberty, JUSTICE and FREEDOM for all.

Lester Lynch, baritone
