From Our Homes to Yours…. Christmas with Cantus Novus
Cantus Novus kicked off our fall season on September 14th with our first virtual rehearsal. Our holiday concerts have become a tradition in Bucks County, inspiring choral music lovers with joy during their holiday season. This year the show must go on as we prepare a program of new music for our audience members to enjoy, from our homes to yours.
The format will be new, stretching us in different and creative ways, and allowing you to share the music of Cantus Novus more broadly than ever before. We are thrilled to be able to continue to practice our craft, while creating a beautiful, unique, and challenging program to share with our community.
Join us on our premier date of Friday, December 18th, 8:00PM on our YouTube channel. We will be presenting an hour of music for you to experience virtually. This is our gift to you for this holiday season, and we will share more details with you soon.
Stay tuned for more exciting news and ways to connect with us. We are working on our 2021 spring program plans, which will feature a world premiere.
And as always, we thank all our patrons and donors for their continued support. If you would like to make a contribution to Cantus Novus, please visit our donor page.
Cantus Novus is an auditioned chamber choir based in Bucks County. Founded in 2000 as an intimate group of choral friends gathering in homes to share a love of music, Cantus Novus has grown to be an established musical presence in the Delaware Valley.
“The May 5th concert was upbeat, inspirational and downright enter-taining! Next time they lift up their voices in our area, you really must attend.”
“Concert was amazing. Looking forward to your next performance.”
“Excellent intonation, near-perfect diction, beautiful dynamic range and very musical.”
Our musical focus can best be described as “roots and wings,” with programming spanning several centuries, honoring our “roots,” the rich a cappella choral tradition that springs from the motets of the Renaissance – while our “wings” present audiences with wide-ranging musical offerings from the best of contemporary composers.
