NO GREATER LOVE THAN THIS

Thursday, October 13, 2016, 7:30pm at Antonello Hall, MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis
Saturday, October 15, 2016, 7:30pm at Ordway Concert Hall in St. Paul
Friday, October 21, 2016, 11:00am at Colonial Church of Edina
Saturday, October 22, 2016, 7:30pm at Trinity Lutheran Church in Stillwater
Sunday, October 23, 2016, 3:00pm at Saint Bartholomew Catholic Church in Wayzata

Camaraderie, bravery, honor, elation, loss, longing – words in common to all soldiers in times of both peace and war; and emotions shared between loved ones at home and across entire nations. Cantus delves into the bonds that have defined those willing to lay down their lives for others with repertoire by Lee Hoiby, Bob Chilcott, William Billings, John Lennon, rarely performed songs for men’s voices by Dvořák and Janáček, and a new commission by Jeff Beal (House of Cards).

CHRISTMAS WITH CANTUS

Sunday, December 11, 2016, 3:00pm at Saint Bartholomew Catholic Church in Wayzata
Thursday, December 15, 2016, 11:00am at Antonello Hall, MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis
Friday, December 16, 2016, 7:30pm at Ordway Concert Hall in St. Paul
Saturday, December 17, 2016, 7:30pm at Trinity Lutheran Church in Stillwater
Tuesday, December 20, 2016, 7:30pm at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Apple Valley

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.

AMERICA WILL BE!

Friday, March 31, 2017, 7:30pm at Antonello Hall, MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis
Saturday, April 1, 2017, 7:30pm at Trinity Lutheran Church in Stillwater
Friday, April 7, 2017, 11:00am at Colonial Church of Edina
Saturday, April 8, 2017, 7:30pm at Ordway Concert Hall in St. Paul
Sunday, April 9, 2017, 3:00pm at Wayzata Community Church in Wayzata

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.

COVERS: A POP CONCERT

June 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10, 2017, 7:30pm at The Cowles Center in Minneapolis

Cantus shows off a completely different side with Covers. In collaboration with some of the Twin Cities’ most talented musicians, Cantus arranges and performs the everyday classics of our time.

Cantus and Chanticleer in Concert
Monday, October 3, 2016, 7:30pm
Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis
For the first time ever, two of the country’s most acclaimed men’s vocal ensembles, Cantus and Chanticleer, perform together!  Each ensemble has delighted audiences with their artistry across the country but never shared a stage before. Cantus and Chanticleer present selections from their own repertoire before joining forces at the end of the evening for select works including the iconic Biebl “Ave Maria.”

High School Residency Concert
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.

Add-on concerts are not included as part of a 3 or 4 concert package.  To add these concerts to your subscription, please order by phone or complete and return the Cantus 16-17 Season Order Form.
