intimate local venues
Cantus Novus is the premier forty-voice choir in Bucks County dedicated to choral artistry, and offering highly-valued educational programs.
Cantus Novus seeks to create musical experiences characterized by artistic excellence, distinctive sound and engaging programming.
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.
We work to nurture and develop the skills of our choral musicians, to increase community appreciation for the choral arts and to encourage and support through public performances and collaboration with other artists and arts organizations.
Cantus Novus is sponsored in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, by the New York Life Foundation, and by Visit Bucks County Pennsylvania.
Cantus Novus is a member of Chorus America and the Guild for Early Music
