QUINCY — The low-voice men’s ensemble Cantus will sing at 7:30 p.m. April 23 in Salem Evangelical Church, 435 S. Ninth. It will be the last concert of its season presented by the Quincy Civic Music Association.
Cantus, a nine-man group, has toured throughout Canada, West Africa and Europe. The group has sung at many nationally recognized festivals and venues in the United States, including the Library of Congress and Kennedy Center. Cantus is regularly featured on NPR’s Performance Today.
“My Journey Yours” is the program Cantus will sing, exploring the courage of those who leave their homes in search of a brighter future, whether by choice, by force, or by necessity – and how they adapt to their new homeland. This program honors the struggle of migration with music from around the world, as well as a newly commissioned piece by Melissa Dunphy, an activist musician who has been featured on “The Rachel Maddow Show.”
Cantus was founded in 1995 at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minn. The group consistently sells out performances in the Twin Cities. It was named “Best Classic Musician” by the Minneapolis newspaper, City Pages. Cantus enjoys a national schedule of tours and is deeply involved in educational outreach programs to train the next generation of choral singers.
This concert is partially sponsored by the Arthur and Lela Lindsay Family. Children 18 and under are admitted free. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the door or at both Hy-Vee and both Country Market stores. Call 217-224-5499 for more information.
