choral artists of east texas

A new high-caliber performing ensemble for the East Texas region, CANTORI invites singers for excellent performances of classical and new choral repertoire which have a lasting, edifying value for both the listener and the performer. 

Rehearsing on Thursday evenings in eight week ‘sessions,’ CANTORI singers successfully perform at a high level of musicianship in a focused period of time, while also being able to continue their associations and memberships with other performing ensembles. We are excited about this unique session-based model for a performing arts organization, and the opportunity to strengthen the vocal arts and enrich the audiences of the East Texas region.

Our first performance session will run January through February 2019, cumulating in a performance of the Duruflé Requiem, on March 2, together with orchestra and the choirs of the University of Texas at Tyler. Rehearsals will take place in the choral rehearsal hall at the university. Our next performance session will take place during the fall of 2019.
