Chorister Expectations

Build Friendships * Create Memories * Make Music

Cantabile's Advanced Choirs, Ensemble and Vocalise, are conducted by Artistic Director Elena Sharkova and conductor Emilie Bertram.

Not only are they the most advanced as far as musicianship, performance repertoire, and vocal technique, but they also have the the largest variety of exciting performance opportunities! Recent and upcoming engagements include the rock play "Dead Man's Bones" with actor Ryan Gosling, a rock band's CD recording session, a production of "Music Man" with Symphony Silicon Valley, concerts with Stanford Lively Arts' Series, and a June 2015 return performance to Carnegie Hall!

Messages from Cantabile Alumni

"I like singing and hanging out with friends. People like to hear us sing and we like to sing for them."
- Clara Takahashi,
Vocalise Member

"I was able to share once in a lifetime experiences with people, which automatically strengthens a bond. You will always be able to share the same memories and only those who were there could truly understand the feelings."
- One Cantabile singer's reaction to the 2009 Baltic Tour experience
