A cappella night with Cantus
    2017-September-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

U.S. male vocal ensemble Cantus will present a night of a cappella at Shenzhen Concert Hall tomorrow night.

Made up of eight men, Cantus is known for innovative concert programming, often tying together works of numerous genres to explore a selected narrative, including classical music, orchestral-vocal repertoire, folk music, pop songs, spirituals and newly commissioned works.

The vocal group maintains a whirlwind schedule of around 70 live concert performances and 30-40 educational activities in a given season abroad. Cantus’ primary mission is advocating music education and encouraging people of all ages to use song as a healthy channel for self-expression and connecting with others. The ensemble has worked with singers throughout the country in educational activities ranging from master classes to festivals and collaborations.

The ensemble began as a student-run organization at St. Olaf College in 1995. After a successful northeast tour in the summer of 1998, Cantus transitioned into a professional ensemble and nonprofit organization in 1999, based out of Minneapolis.

The ensemble received the 2009 Chorus America Margaret Hillis Award, the first collaborative ensemble to do so. The ensemble’s regular work with students nationwide also earned them the Chorus America’s Education Outreach Award in 2011.

Cantus has released numerous critically acclaimed recordings. The group’s “That Eternal Day,” “Christmas With Cantus” and “On the Shoulders of Giants” brought in the Grammy Award-winning production team of Steve Barnett and Preston Smith for recording, engineering and mastering.

Tickets: 80-480 yuan

Venue: Shenzhen Concert Hall, intersection of Hongli Road and Yitian Road, Futian District (福田区红荔路和益田路交汇处深圳音乐厅)
