No Twin Cities choir outclasses Cantus in the Christmas department.”

For the Beauty of the Earth- Twin Cities Series

We can all too easily find ourselves detached from the natural world. Even so, the Earth always remains integral to our lives, providing not only life-sustaining resources but also artistic inspiration. Though we may be imperfect stewards of our planet, we can share an appreciation of its profound beauty and fragility. Join Cantus at For the Beauty of the Earth for a celebration of the majesty of this planet that we share.

Songs My Mother Taught Me- Twin Cities Series

Songs My Mother Taught Me- Twin Cities Series

212.jpg

Folk songs remain a central piece of our American cultural heritage. Across generations, they are passed down from parents to children, between friends, and among communities. Folk songs give definition to our shared history and inform who we aspire to become.

Last July, the Star Tribune called Cantus’ inaugural chamber series “totally successful.” Join us again for an intimate chamber music experience in Songs My Mother Taught Me. Inspired by Dvořák’s composition of the same name and anchored with the timeless cycle of folk songs set by Aaron Copland, Old American Songs, the program couples each singer’s unique individual sound and virtuosity with Cantus’ usual ensemble fare.

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.

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.
