Cantus to appear at Bravo! Vail Sunday through Thursday

The acclaimed men’s vocal ensemble Cantus returns to Vail today through Thursday for six performances at Bravo! Vail. During their time in Vail, Cantus will perform repertoire ranging from plain chant and early Polyphony, to masterpieces for male voices, to folk songs from around the world and works by composer and arrangers amongst the Cantus ranks. The July 16th performance of repertoire by Dvorak and Janacek, performed with the Calder Quartet, Anne-Marie McDermott, piano and Paul Neubauer, viola will be broadcast on July 27th as part of Colorado Public Radio’s Saturday “SummerFest” Concert Series.

Cantus is looking forward to its second year at Bravo! Vail.

“The amazing scenery inspires great artistry and we really have the opportunity to dig in and sing great classical repertoire,” said baritone Adam Reinwald.

“Most of the time Cantus is out on the road singing concerts as an individual ensemble, adds tenor Aaron Humble. “At Bravo! Vail, we are among hundreds of colleagues. We get to hear amazing music, collaborate with some of the best chamber players, and just make a lot of new friends. You just can’t put that many artists in one village and not have amazing results!”
