Con Brio celebrates, honors and empowers the feminine spirit by performing choral music of excellence and diversity.  We are an enthusiastic, multi-generational group of singers with roots in many countries of the world.  Con Brio performs a broad spectrum of songs, from classical to Broadway to opera to world music while working to hone our skills as singers and musicians. Through our singing we hope to uplift and inspire our audiences!

Con Brio performs in the Columbia Choirs concert series and in the community throughout the year. Con Brio has travelled to New York, Arizona, Canada, New Mexico, Oregon and Utah to perform jointly with other women’s choirs and mixed choirs. Singers will be invited to sing with Con Brio after a stress-free, brief placement appointment with Dori Baunsgard.
