Pro Musica of WAU


Columbia Collegiate Chorale of WAU


The Columbia Collegiate Chorale of Washington Adventist University was established in 1994 by its former director, James Bingham, and draws its membership largely from the student body of Washington Adventist University. Incorporated within the chorale is a smaller select chamber choir, the ProMusica of Washington Adventist University, which was established in 1967 by the late Paul Hill, director of the famed Paul Hill Chorale.


The choir maintains a heavy schedule of services and concerts, traveling extensively both nationally and internationally. It has appeared in numerous prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, the National Gallery of Art, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Washington, D.C., as well as in other leading concert halls and cathedrals, both within the United States and abroad. Under the current leadership of Dr. Anwar Ottley, the choir continues the legacy and standard of excellence for which it has become known.
