Mission Statement

Through vital performances of works old and new, familiar and unfamiliar, the Cantata Singers shares with the community the power of music to enrich the human spirit.

Description

The Cantata Singers was founded in 1964 to perform the cantatas of J.S. Bach--a body of works largely unknown at that time. Since then the group has expanded its horizons to include repertoire from the 17th century to the present day. The Cantata Singers' dedication to serious and challenging programming won the group the ASCAP/Chorus America Award for Adventurous Programming of Contemporary Music in 1995. Under the direction of David Hoose, the group has commissioned and premiered five major choral-orchestral works: John Harbison's The Flight Into Egypt, which won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize in music; Peter Child's Estrella; Donald Sur's Slavery Documents; Andrew Imbrie's Adam; and Andy Vores's World Wheel, premiered in January 2000. In addition, the Cantata Singers has recorded works by the American composers John Harbison, Charles Fussell, Irving Fine, Seymour Shifrin, and David Chaitkin. This is the organization's nineteenth season under the direction of David Hoose.
