Cantus: Alone Together
By almost any measure, our ability to communicate has never been more advanced. Nevertheless — thought linked by technology — people and communities still struggle to connect in meaningful ways. Cantus explores the challenges of connecting in our modern age through works by Beethoven and Leonard Bernstein paired with such contemporary composers as Jennifer Higdon, David Lang, and Gabriel Kahane, as well as arrangements of music by Simon & Garfunkel, The Beatles, and Dave Matthews. Alone Together will also feature a brand new, multi-movement work by Libby Larsen.
Hailed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare) and winner of the prestigious Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence from Chorus America, Cantus enjoys an active schedule of national tour dates, subscription concerts in its home of Minneapolis/St. Paul, educational outreach programs and recordings.
Cantus is acknowledged around the world for their programmatic versatility, artistic excellence and charismatic personality.
