Message from Board President Graham Seel




We have reached the end of a fiscal year for Cantare, and it’s been quite a ride! Each of us has dealt with brand new challenges, discouragements, discoveries and perspectives. We have seen how critical it is that organizations like Cantare survive. This isn’t just because of the music, though that is valuable enough, but also because of the values and vision we project. We don’t just believe in the equal value of all people, we live it out every day as an organization. I know that you, like me, support Cantare because you believe that this matters enormously....

Making a Difference: Cantare Children's Choirs

We asked our elementary school singers to share their dreams for our world, and captured their responses on video. Listen to what they have to say.


2020-21 Concert Season
Together in Unity

Visit Upcoming Concerts to stay up to date on the 2020-21 season.

As of June 2020, we have two concert schedules planned for Cantare's 34th season. We are aware that we might not be able to perform at all should sheltered-

in-place restrictions return. One reflects the ability to perform with our 100+ voice Chorale and full orchestra; the other constitutes a 40-voice selected choir, a size which is able to safely social-distance as singers. Concerts will include music postponed from 2019-20 and all-new spectacular songs from Cantare's adult and children's choirs. We are also aware that we might not be able to perform at all, should shelter-in-place restrictions return.
