Elevating the Human Experience


Kantorei is a professional-caliber choral ensemble based in Denver, CO, led by Artistic Director Joel M. Rinsema. Our mission is to elevate the human experience through choral excellence.

We were founded in 1997 by six friends who valued artistic achievement alongside the close-knit community that only a choir can provide. Today, we’re 50 voices that believe in the power of the choral arts to deeply affect those who experience it: audiences and singers alike. Join us, and become part of the Kantorei community.

“…one of Denver’s foremost choirs…the full-bodied sound of the choir was stunning.”
