ALONE TOGETHER

By almost any measure, the ease and speed with which we communicate has never been greater. Yet the distance between nations, among communities, and in individual relationships only seems to widen. Alone Together explores the struggle to build meaningful connection in a world that has never been more connected. Featuring a new commission from Libby Larsen, Cantus reaffirms our common need for understanding and acceptance in the modern world.

CHRISTMAS WITH CANTUS

In the 1880s, Edward White Benson, the future Archbishop of Canterbury, organized the original Lessons and Carols service for the purpose of keeping men out of pubs on Christmas Eve. This innovative new vehicle for meditation and thought quickly became a model embraced worldwide. Our Christmas with Cantus presents a modern take on the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, reimagined for our world today. Join us as we both honor the age-old traditions and establish news ones for the next generation.

WHEN I GROW UP

What kind of person do I want to be? How do I find someone to share my life with? What happens when I make mistakes? When I Grow Up explores the path of self-realization. From childhood through adulthood, Cantus reflects on the cycle of life. Exploring themes of adolescence, companionship, parenthood, masculinity, and morality, When I Grow Up considers how we come who we are.

UNREQUITED

Who hasn’t experience a love that only goes one way? Unrequited explores the risks — as well as the dizzying highs — embedded in feeling passionately about someone. Join Cantus for the third installment of its popular chamber music series, coupling solos and duets with Cantus’ rich, full-ensemble texture. Including Robert Schumann’s most famous song cycle, Dichterliebe (Op. 48), Unrequited is a journey of finding love, losing it, and moving on.
