Pursuing the highest standard of musical expression


Founded in 1988 by Axel Theimer, and now led by Adam Reinwald, Kantorei is one of the premier choral ensembles in Minnesota. With an integral focus on vocal health, Kantorei’s singers have set a standard in Minnesota for rich and effortless choral sound. Kantorei performs a wide range of mostly a cappella music from around the world. Most concerts include signature pieces complementing pieces from both well-known and emerging composers.

Kantorei performs primarily in Minnesota and shares recordings worldwide. Through its outreach programming, Kantorei invites audiences of all ages to share its pursuit of singing for a lifetime.
