Opening Concert

CANTUS (USA)

The “intellectually, emotionally and musically rich” (Star Tribune) nine-member men’s vocal ensemble Cantus is known worldwide for its trademark warmth and blend and its engaging performances of music ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Working without a conductor, the members of Cantus rehearse and perform as chamber musicians, each contributing to the entirety of the artistic process. The Washington Post hails the ensemble’s sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” and refers to their music-making as “spontaneous grace.” Cantus performs more than 60 concerts each year both in national and international touring, as well as in its home of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota and has released 17 albums on its own self-titled label. Past performances have brought Cantus to the stages of Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, UCLA, San Francisco Performances, Atlanta’s Spivey Hall and Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival. The 2015-2016 season sees Cantus perform twice in New York with the Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concerts and Music Mondays, and in Denver, Tucson, Detroit and Washington D.C. at the National Gallery of Art among numerous other North American engagements. The ensemble will make its first visit to Colombia, South America in September 2015. Each year the artists of Cantus share their own love of singing with thousands of students through workshops and master classes to ensure the future of choral arts.
