Cantate Carlisle:

A Premier
Adult Choral Ensemble

Our accomplished singers represent a diverse group ranging in age from 23 to 80 and are drawn from communities throughout the area. Their unifying factor is a passion for choral singing and a love of fine choral repertoire with its power to renew the soul, expand the mind, and to bring people together. Our hallmark is our thoughtful and eclectic programming which includes choral masterworks with orchestra, a cappella contemporary classics, folk songs, vocal jazz, Broadway arrangements, spirituals, multi-cultural works, and several works commissioned especially for us. Founded in 1990 by Cheryl Parsons, Cantate Carlisle continues under the direction of Michelle DiBona Trefren. We are proud to be the Resident Choir of the Carlisle Theatre.
