Cantus presents Cantus and Lorelei in Concert

Ordway Events & Partnerships, Ordway Concert Hall

Join Cantus and Lorelei for an unforgettable, one-night-only collaboration that brings together two of the country’s leading vocal ensembles. Building on the success of Cantus’ recent collaborative concerts with Chanticleer and Sweet Honey in the Rock, this partnership with Lorelei showcases the very best in vocal chamber music.

Acclaimed worldwide for its trademark warmth and blend, men’s vocal ensemble Cantus is widely known for its innovative programming and engaging performances. The Washington Post has hailed Cantus’ sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power,” and refers to the “spontaneous grace” of the Twin Cities-based ensemble.

Lorelei is an all-professional vocal ensemble, comprising nine women whose expertise ranges from early to contemporary repertoire, and whose independent careers as soloists and ensemble singers across the globe lend to the rich and diverse vocal palette that defines the ensemble’s thrilling delivery of “exact, smooth, and stylish” programming (Boston Globe).
