Cor Cantiamo is a touring chamber choir in residence at Northern Illinois University with the mission to perform and promote contemporary choral music and foster new composers. Since their founding in 2009, the choir has emerged as an accomplished vocal ensemble, receiving accolades for their performances. In their inaugural year, Cor Cantiamo performed with Morten Lauridsen. In spring 2014, Centaur Records will release Cor Cantiamo’s first commercial recording, a CD of choral music by Jaakko Mäntyjärvi. In the fall of 2013, Cor Cantiamo premiered Hear My Voice, a commissioned work by Daniel Knaggs, at the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music. In partnership with Soli Deo Gloria, Inc., Cor Cantiamo presented the United States premiere of a new Psalm setting by Ukrainian-born composer Galina Grigorjeva in January 2014. Over the next three years, the ensemble will be recording all fifteen of the SDG Psalms Project choral works.
The ACDA Central Division Conference will take place February 26 through March 1, 2014, in Cincinnati, Ohio. You can register NOW.
