– NEXT WEEK: PRO MUSICA PRESENTS CANTUS, PREMIERE MEN’S VOCAL ENSEMBLE

Cantus

Thursday, November 13, 7pm
Central Christian Center (5th & Virginia)

Acclaimed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), Cantus is known worldwide for its trademark warmth, blend, and engaging performances of music ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century. The Washington Post has hailed the ensemble’s sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” and refers to its music making as “spontaneous grace.” Cantus performs more than 70 concerts each year both in national and international touring, as well as in its home of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. Past performances have brought Cantus to the stages of the Kennedy Center, UCLA, San Francisco Performances, Atlanta’s Spivey Hall, Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival and New York’s Merkin Concert Hall, to name just a few. During the 2012-2013 season, Cantus made its first trip to the Middle East with appearances in Muscat, Oman and Dubai, UAE, along with performances in Chicago, Washington DC, Dallas/Fort Worth among numerous other North American engagements.

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 (Sam Green from Webb City is now a member of this group).

The program they will perform here is “All Is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914” which will include three actors from Theater Latte Da.  This program commemorates a remarkable true story, told in the words and songs of the men who lived it. Cantus’ appearance in Joplin is funded, in part, by the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency. Free and open to the public.
