Marylhurst University Music Programs: Cantus in Concert

Marylhurst Chamber Choir
Lane College Chamber Choir
Reed College Collegium Musicum

Justin Smith, Matthew Svoboda and John Cox, conductors

Perhaps the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States, Cantus stuns with its immaculate blend and expressive performances. They will be in residency at Marylhurst February 11-13, working with our choirs. The residency comes to a grand finale with a gala final concert featuring the top choirs from Marylhurst, Reed and Lane College, plus a performance from Cantus themselves; their only Oregon appearances this year!

The “engaging” (New Yorker) men’s vocal ensemble Cantus is widely known for its trademark warmth and blend, innovative programming and engaging performances of music ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century. The Washington Post has hailed the Cantus sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” and refers to the “spontaneous grace” of its music making.

As one of the nation’s few full-time vocal 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.
