Carolina Pro Musica was established in 1977 to promote the performance of music written before 1800 through the use of historic instruments and/or copies and in the performance practice of the periods in which the music was written. The ensemble has maintained a concert series in the historic 1892 St. Mary's Chapel in Charlotte bringing guest artists to Charlotte as well as performing a variety of music from medieval to present day. The ensemble has performed throughout the Southeast. They have received grants from the N.C. Arts Council, the South Carolina Arts Council, the Arts and Science Council of Charlotte-Mecklenburg, the Cultural Education Collaborative (Charlotte,NC) and monies from the National Endowment for the Arts. A Christmas music compact disk with funding by the Hearst Service Center of the Hearst Corporation was available for the 1997 Holiday season. It was recorded at Belmont Abbey, Belmont, NC.
