The Central Maryland Chorale
Monica Otal
Artistic Director
Theodore Guerrant
Accompanist

The Central Maryland Chorale began as the Laurel Oratorio Society, an association of choir members from local churches, gathered together to sing Brahms' German Requiem at St. Philip's Episcopal Church in 1969. Now in its 50th year of performing before appreciative local audiences, the CMC is a non-auditioned chorus which attracts singers from the metropolitan areas of Washington DC and Baltimore who enjoy singing choral masterworks, as well as lighter musical fare.



We rehearse every Monday evening, September through May, including federal holidays, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Laurel Presbyterian Church, 7610 Old Sandy Spring Rd., in Laurel, Maryland. Auditions are not required, although you should be able to read music from a score.
