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 in ‘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 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 took place in January through February 2019, cumulating in a performance of the Duruflé Requiem. We are now pleased to announce our 2019 one-week Summer Session, ‘A Midsummer Night’s Jazz’ !
