In Memorium: Charles I. Ecker

In honor of Charles "Chuck" Ecker, long-time Howard County educator, former County Executive, and well-known Charity Auctioneer, Columbia Pro Cantare dedicated its October 24, 2015 concert to his memory.

In October 2008, Mr. Ecker honored CPC by serving as its auctioneer in a very successful silent & live auction. In 2010, Mr. Ecker honored CPC by being a contestant in its first "Battle for Frances' Baton" fundraiser at its May concert.

Thanks for the memories, Mr. Ecker!

Sandy Fairhurst and class

For a number of years, CPC has sent professional teachers and performers to share the arts with Howard County Head Start classes under the Summer Enrichment program sponsored by Sunrise Rotary.

The late Bob Russell will always be remembered as an outstanding leader in the community and dear friend to CPC. Here we see Bob, left, at the Longfellow 2008 Fourth of July Celebration, one of his lasting contributions to Columbia, and another view of the 2008 Celebration showing CPC members, led by Frances Dawson, singing the Star Spangled Banner.
