Arts in the Cathedral presents Canterra Musica at Church of the Saviour on Sunday, June 5, at 3:30 p.m. A free-will offering will be taken.
Canterra Musica is the most advanced treble choir of the Oberlin Choristers. Founded in 1991, Oberlin Choristers provides Northeast Ohio children and teenagers with an exceptional choral education. Singers in kindergarten through 12th grade are taught in five separate ensembles by master teachers who specialize in teaching healthy vocal production, music literacy and artistic expression.
Canterra Musica, comprising auditioned singers in seventh- to 12th-grades, has traveled each year since 1995, singing in world-class venues, including the Sydney Opera House, Australia; St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Ireland; Chartres Cathedral, France; and Carnegie Hall, New York. The singers have participated in numerous festivals, honor choirs, and community events in collaboration with Oberlin College Opera Theatre, Cleveland Opera, Oberlin Summer Theatre Festival, and, most recently, as the guest choir for the world tour of Video Games Live. This summer the choir will perform in Philadelphia, Princeton, and Carnegie Hall. To find out more, visit www.ochoristers.org
