Travel involves a journey away from the familiar in search of the new and unknown. Once we leave home, we seldom return the same. This summer, Cantus explores the discovery that comes from travel with a series of chamber music concerts. Featuring the towering song cycle Songs of Travel by Vaughan Williams, the singers will interweave solos, full ensemble pieces, and everything in between to offer an intimate Cantus experience with music from around the world.

America Will Be!

Saturday, April 1, 2017, 7:30pm at Trinity Lutheran Church in Stillwater

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness haven’t always meant the same thing for all. How does an entire country change? How are rights and freedoms earned? In America Will Be!, Cantus explores the sacrifices of some of our nation’s greatest heroes at home: men and women fighting for the evident truth that all are equal. Featuring timeless spirituals like Harry T. Burleigh’s “Deep River” and “This Ol’ Hammer” by John W. Work, as well as new voices in American music, America Will Be! looks toward the potential of the American promise.

Traditions are handed down from parent to child or friend to friend. While they may seem timeless, we are reminded that our loved ones are not. With holiday favorites, Biebl’s beloved “Ave Maria,” and music from across five centuries, Cantus explores the meaning behind traditions and discovering the wonder anew in those experiencing it for the first time.
