What exactly is Cantus Idol?

The event and fundraiser takes place at the Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant in Minneapolis and benefits the education and artistic programs of Cantus.

At the live performance, the nine singers of Cantus compete against each other for the title of Cantus Idol. The audience votes with their dollars sending the singers from Round 1 (9 singers) to Round 2 (4 singers) to the Finals (2 singers). The title and crown goes to the Cantus Idol but the real winner is the Cantus organization. With support from the event, we keep our education and artistic programs strong!

The event on May 12 is sold out! But this year, you have the opportunity to help determine this year’s Idol through this special online pre-vote.

Remember, your vote counts! Voting closes on May 11 at 11:59pm CDT. The winner of the Pre-Vote will be announced live on Facebook on Monday, May 12 around 8:30pm CDT.
