Your gift to Cantus goes directly to support our purpose: inspiring audiences with music performed at the highest level.
“I’d like to take the opportunity to let you know how much joy you’ve brought me and my family in the very short time I’ve been a fan.”
-Chris Sitek, Cantus friend and supporter
There is not a Cantus concert that passes without an audience member telling us how inspired they have been by the music that they’ve heard. Whether it’s a high school student who can see that learning to sing is a life-long skill or an adult who is looking for respite from their daily life, Cantus creates a direct, human connection between the singers and audience. No conductor. No robes. Standing in their traditional arc, Cantus looks to its audience to complete the circle of the performance experience.
Cantus serves its home audience with a lively season of concerts, annual performances of All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 and an annual Father’s Day concert at Lake Harriet. In addition, Cantus works with three area high school choruses each year at no charge in regular workshops culminating in a high-spirited concert with the school choirs and Cantus!
Your gift to Cantus, along with those from other generous members of our community, will ensure that Cantus can continue to keep our ticket prices low and keep our education programs strong. On behalf of the board, artists and staff, we thank you for your support!
