Still Singing

Cantare is excited to offer an all-new program during shelter-in-place: Still Singing. Each series of five or six weekly lectures/sing-alongs explores new topics, such as classical masterworks, the history of African American Music, and more.

Decoding the Masterworks: Series 2


Back to the Classics


Register now to join Artistic Director David Morales for another round of exploring the greatest works in choral music canon, from 7 to 9 pm on Mondays via Zoom. Each week, David will delve into the historical context and musical characteristics or one or two choral masterworks, along with texts and

compositional techniques employed by each composer. Each class will be half lecture, half sing-along, as the audience is invited to join in on their vocal parts. Scores will be shared onscreen as well as sent out before each class, along with lyrics, musical clips, and any (optional) relevant readings. 


David has 50 years of professional choral conducting and 25 years as a college music professor.


All live classes will be recorded, and recordings made available to registrants the next day.
