CANTATA ACADEMY CHORALE has been a part of Detroit's cultural fabric since its founding in 1961. This holiday season, we are pleased to present the Rutter Gloria accompanied by brass and timpani. Consistent funding is essential to the long-term success of the Chorale, and helps us bring more exciting programs like this to you, our audience.
Cantata Academy, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, is dedicated to high caliber choral performance and outreach to communities throughout the Detroit metropolitan area and the world. The Chorale, composed of forty accomplished singers from many walks of life, is recognized for its exemplary presentation of the finest choral music in a variety of genres. Cantata presents an annual subscription season, collaborates with local orchestras and choral societies, and appears as part of sacred and secular concert series throughout Southeast Michigan. Our concerts educate and increase community appreciation for the choral arts, while providing singers with an opportunity to refine their skills and grow in musicianship and artistry. By fostering an atmosphere in which fine vocalists may excel, we will share our love of music with our audiences and community.
Sadly, Cantata’s office and music library in Warren suffered devastating losses in historic flooding in August 2014. Over fifty seasons' worth of purchased sheet music and octavos were destroyed by six feet of contaminated water. We have been fortunate for all of the support we've received, but our recovery continues. Thank you for supporting us in the RiseDetroit Charity Challenge!
