selections featuring the talents of accompanist Arthur M Thompson


Our Cantate Cum Spiritum concert that was held on May 3rd and 4th 2014 was a GREAT success.  It is soon time for auditions for our 2014-2015 concert season. Auditions for 
adult singers will be held June 16 - 30, 2014. To schedule an audition either call

Cantate Carlisle concerts have become a unique cultural asset by providing area audiences the best of two worlds: the performance quality associated with ensembles based in a large city, but within a setting that promotes the sense of community that makes Carlisle such a wonderful place to live. 

While providing an ongoing showcase for local talent, Cantate Carlisle brings thoughtful
programming, expressive and elegant music making, and the splendor of beautifully-produced, well-tuned voices to area audiences. Cantate Carlisle contributes to the quality of life in our community by enhancing many local activities and special functions, including benefit concerts for other non-profit organizations.

diverse musical program to the area. We welcome your ongoing support and  participation.
