Cantabile Singers Participate in Carmina Burana with Great Success!

"The choruses outstripped even the soloists in awesomeness. … The Chorale enunciated its lyrics with a clarity that overwhelmed its position far off at the back of the stage." - David Bratman, San Francisco Classical Voice

 

Cantabile's Youth Choral Music Festival for Young Voices: An African Celebration a resounding success!

On Saturday, March 8, 2014, Cantabile Youth Singers proudly hosted the fourth annual "Cantabile Festival for Young Voices: An African Celebration" at the First United Methodist Church of Palo Alto. We welcomed several guest clinicians and were happy to have percussionist, Jim Greiner from Santa Cruz, CA as a special guest to help us celebrate the amazing day.

Cantabile hosts this festival each year to share our teaching and musicianship more widely in the community. We hosted choirs from Bullis Charter School, Cantabella Children's Chorus, The Synapse School and Woodside School and taught a special master class with Bullis Charter School's middle school choir on Friday. With the help of our special guests, the morning was filled with singing, dancing, African drumming and learning a few words in several different African languages. We concluded the afternoon with a free concert for an audience of 750 people - 350 singers and 400 audience members. The crowd and the children truly embraced the spirit of the African theme and its traditions, which made it a very successful and fun celebration. Cantabile is proud to share our tradition of choral music excellence with the community and grateful to all the conductors and teachers who joined us.
