Kantorei’s 31st Season!

Welcome to our new season! Music Director Dr. Axel Theimer says, “During our 31st anniversary season, we are continuing our mission to share seldom heard treasures with our audiences, but also introduce new works.”

Among the new works is the premiere of “From a Window” by Minnesota composer and Kantorei tenor, Jonathan Posthuma, based on a series of poems by William Carlos Williams.  Composer Jonathan Posthuma says, “Together, the three poems capture the mixed emotions of joy and sadness, uncertainty and resolve, childhood and adulthood, and are woven together with lush harmonic language and a variety of vocal textures that appear in much of my writing.” Join us for our Audience Appreciation concert to hear the opening movement “Woman at a Window.”

Kantorei is pleased to welcome you to our concerts this season.  In the words of our Artistic Director, Axel Theimer, “Music has the power to bring people together. Join us and celebrate with us.”

Kantorei’s Spring Concert; “Images”

Music is an ‘unspoken’ language. Although traditional choral music uses words, any sung sounds, even without words, trigger a response in all of us. Music allows us to describe certain emotions and/or events – and all of these triggers create in us images. We hear some words set to music and we imagine the scenery, the overall surroundings, the characters of the people described in the words and in music. We all have our own picture in our mind.

Come hear Kantorei’s final concerts of our 31st season and see what images are conjured up in your soul as you listen to the music of Brahms, Rheinberger, Arnesen, Chatman, Finzi, Uusberg, Posthuma and others.
