Each summer, members of Cantabile’s Avanti (formerly Ensemble) and Vocalise choirs tour nationally or internationally, and participate in various festivals. Touring is a valuable way for students to explore the world of professional musicians and the performing arts and to understand and appreciate the preparation and dedication required to be a performer on the world’s stages. The tour offers a chance for singers to make new friends, see a culturally vibrant city and learn how to travel as a professional performer.
Since 2009, Cantabile Youth Singers completed a concert tour of Estonia, Finland and Russia and performed a stand-alone concert at Carnegie Hall. In 2011, select members of Cantabile Youth Singers departed for England on a concert tour, where they also participated in the Somerset International Festival.
