Cantus Education Outreach- High School Residency Concert

  • Normandale Lutheran Church

Friday, April 28th, 2017, 7:30pm
Normandale Lutheran Church in Edina
Each year Cantus invites Twin Cities area high school choirs to apply for its award-winning residency program and selects three schools to participate. Over the course of the 2016-17 school year, choirs from Johnson Senior High (St. Paul), Washburn High School (Minneapolis), and St. Michael-Albertville High School (St. Michael) will work with Cantus, free-of-charge, on improving vocal skills, expanding choral repertoire and developing a life-long love for ensemble singing. This inspiring concert, featuring Cantus and the three high schools, is the culminating performance of their year together.

Songs of Travel

  • Swedish Institute and The Museum of Russian Art

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.

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.
