About the Show
Acclaimed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), Cantus engages audiences in a meaningful music experience and ensures the future of ensemble singing by mentoring young singers and educators. Cantus was founded on the ideals of collaborative music-making: The ensemble works together to reach new levels of artistic excellence, innovation and audience engagement. Our vision is to give voice to shared human experiences.
For this performance Cantus will be performing “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.
