Male Choral Group, Cantus, to Perform at Concord Thursday, November 20

Athens, W.Va. – The nationally recognized, professional, male vocal ensemble, Cantus, will perform at Concord University Thursday, November 20, 2008, at 8 p.m. in the Main Theater of the Alexander Fine Arts Center.

Cantus engages audiences through a combination of beautiful words, beautiful sounds, theatrical performances and thematic threads. Program highlights for the 2008-2009 season include “Lux Aurumque,” “Evensong at Brookside,” “A Sound Like This” and “Who’s Loving You.”

Their exciting blend of music has been praised for its “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” by The Washington Post. Mike Anthony of the Minneapolis Star Tribune described their performance saying, “Cantus is so engaging that it’s easy to forget how large their accomplishment has been. They manage to entertain while presenting music of real depth.”

Exalting the human spirit through their songs, Cantus takes pride in encouraging others to sing. The ensemble promotes music education through activities from general classes to master classes and festivals. The ensemble works with over 10,000 young people each season encouraging them to sing.

This event is part of the Concord Artist-Lecture Series.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $4 for senior citizens and $2 for non-Concord students. Reservations are not necessary for this performance.
