North Central Division Conference: Cantus
Date: March 13, 2014
During the 2014 North Central Division Conference, ACDA will present . . .
Acclaimed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), Cantus is known for its trademark warmth and blend and its engaging performances of music ranging from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century. Cantus performs more than seventy concerts each year both in national and international touring, as well as in its home of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. As one of the nation’s few full-time men’s ensembles, Cantus has grown in prominence with its distinctive approach to creating music. Working without a conductor, the members of Cantus rehearse and perform as chamber musicians, each contributing to the entirety of the artistic process. Cantus has a rich history of collaborations with other performing arts organizations. Cantus is the recipient of numerous awards, including Chorus America’s highest honor, the Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence (2009), as well as Chorus America’s Education Outreach Award (2011). Cantus was also the 2010-2011 artist in residence on Minnesota Public Radio and American Public Media’s Performance Today.
The ACDA North Central Division Conference will take place March 18-22, 2014, in Des Moines, Iowa. You can register NOW.
