Cantabile's Monteverdi performers shine with musical excellence at Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers
at Stanford Memorial Church Saturday, May 31, 2014
Thirty singers from Ensemble and Vocalise performed Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers with Stanford's Chamber Chorale and guest director Dr. Craig Jessop, Dean of the Caine College of the Arts at Utah State University and Director Emeritus of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Maestra Elena Sharkova and period-instrument ensemble The Whole Noyse.
"To work and perform the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 with Elena Sharkova and the Cantabile Singers was one of the great experiences of my professional career. The beauty of their angelic voices coupled with the mature artistry of their musical performance is simply one of the great treasures of children's choirs in America!" - Dr. Craig Jessup, Dean of the Cain College of the Arts at Utah State University and Director Emeritus of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir

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.
