Audition Information
Select the name of the venue for a map and directions

Columbia Pro Cantare holds auditions in June and July each summer, and in January, by appointment. Email to set up an audition. Laura Lee Fischer, Artistic Director, will contact you to set up a time. Auditions take place in the office of CPC at 8510 High Ridge Rd., Studio 17, Ellicott City, MD 21043. Singers with previous choral experience, some sight reading skills and tonal memory are preferred.

The full chorus of 100 singers performs four programs each year, one of which is always Handel's Messiah.

Regular rehearsals begin in September, and Columbia Pro Cantare rehearses Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 10 p.m. September through May at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, (corner of Frederick & Chatham Rds.), 3604 Chatham Rd., Ellicott City, MD 21042.

Summer rehearsals are held in July and August, times and place to be announced.

Singers performing in the fall concert are encouraged to attend at least three summer rehearsals.

* Our photographs above deserve special attention and an explanation or two: at left, a cross section of CPC rehearses for a spring concert at the Second Presbyterian Church in Baltimore; center - some of our soloists lay to rest any idea that great singers can't have fun, especially when dress rehearsal falls on Halloween; and finally, Frances and a few of our tenors/baritones take a quick break to discuss the finer points of a passage from Peter Schickele's Concerto for Piano and Chorus: The Twelve Months, performed in May, 2004.

We look forward to singing with you!
