Dear Chorus Members, Family and Friends,
The Columbia Pro Cantare will hold its fourth fundraising trip to The Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina from Friday 6/2/2023 through Monday 6/5/2023. Spoleto is the largest arts festival in the USA. An outstanding and versatile program has been planned that includes dance, jazz, theatre and chamber music.
Since this is a fundraising event, we ask that each participant make a $100 tax deductible donation to The Columbia Pro Cantare (CPC) as part of the cost for the trip. By attending as a group, we are eligible for discounted tickets to selected performances and we get priority seating. Discounts are for groups of 10 or more.
For more information please click on the Spoleto 2023 Invitation Letter.

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
