The Chesapeake Chorale, based in Bowie, MD, has been committed to serving the local community as an educational resource for 37 years. In May, 2018, we are celebrating the life and music of an American legend, Leonard Bernstein - Composer, Pianist, Conductor - born 100 years ago. We seek your support... We will commemorate this giant in a two-day festival consisting of three special events. Join Jesse Parker, Director, Susan Ricci Rogel, Pianist, and the entire Chorale for a weekend festival devoted to his legacy! We need just  a little help from you...
