Choir for everyone to enjoy.

female choir singer

Cántico Singers is dedicated to passionate performances of choral music in a variety of genres. Now in our twelfth year, our community is a 20-voice ensemble of local talent with eclectic singing backgrounds. We perform a broad mix of choir repertoire ranging from classical, jazz, Broadway, folk and everything in between. Our concerts also highlight solos and small groups featuring professional musical styles.

Performances are designed to attract both to choir fans and newcomers alike. We mix the familiar with the unusual, the popular with the ancient, and the profound with light-hearted fun. It all comes together to create a fast-paced concert that is enjoyable for all. Our concerts give us the chance to share with our excitement and passion for the music we sing.

Meet our leadership.
