Dreamweaver: Featuring New Music of Ola Gjeilo

We begin our season celebrating one of the most popular composers of our time, Ola Gjeilo. Ola and I have been friends for quite some time, and I have seen his career take off to new heights. He has been performed and recorded by some of the top-tier ensembles in the world, including Voces8 and Tenebrae. He will join us for those concerts, and I can’t wait for you to meet him!

Salon Series

Miscast

Our singers perform songs from roles in which they would never be cast! The results are sure to be electrifying, enchanting and entertaining.

A Night of Art Songs

Join us for an intimate evening of exquisite vocal performance, this time celebrating with a classical flare. Singers will perform various works from the familiar “art song” genre, but also to include selections from opera, oratorios, and the like. Don’t be surprised if your soul’s ‘musical cup’ overfloweth after this extraordinary night of song! Hosted by Kantorei members Jason Hindman & Landon Covington in their Stapleton home, please come to enjoy delicious hors d’oeuvres, beverages, and fantastic company. All proceeds from the evening support Kantorei.

The familiar songs of Christmas are the basis for this concert and we urge you to bring the whole family!
