Upcoming Twin Cities Concerts

Is it summer yet? 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. Whether it’s music from the ’60s, the ’80s or something brand new, Covers will have you singing and dancing in the aisles.

 

Folk songs remain a central piece of our American cultural heritage. Across generations, they are passed down from parents to children, between friends, and among communities. Folk songs give definition to our shared history and inform who we aspire to become. Join us for Songs My Mother Taught Me, an intimate chamber music experience featuring works by Dvořák, Copland, and more.

 

 

Previous 2017/2018 Concerts

We have all experienced personal ‘sunrises’ and ‘twilight hours’ — moments when we suddenly look at the world in a new way. Discovery of Sight revels in the mystery, science, and poetry of what it means to truly ‘see.’ Beyond much-loved masterpieces like Richard Strauss’ “Traumlicht,” and Franz Schubert’s “Die Nacht,” the program breaks new ground with a new commission from Gabriel Kahane.

Storytelling is a meaningful part of the holiday season. In Christmas with Cantus, Cantus reimagines beloved stories through familiar carols and new holiday hits. Featuring narrated passages from classic holiday tales A Christmas CarolGift of the Magi, and ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, we are reminded of the meaning and joy of the season with fresh perspective and just the right amount of nostalgia.

 

We can all too easily find ourselves detached from the natural world. Even so, the Earth always remains integral to our lives, providing not only life-sustaining resources but also artistic inspiration. Though we may be imperfect stewards of our planet, we can share an appreciation of its profound beauty and fragility.
