Cantus will present "On the Shoulders of Giants," a diverse program of music from the earliest notated music to recent works in a variety of languages and styles. Music of Victoria, Grieg, Thompson, Schubert, Spirituals, U2, and a host of others.

Acclaimed as the “premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), Cantus is committed to inspiring audiences with music performed at the highest level. Rehearsing and performing without a conductor or music director, the nine members of Cantus are renowned for adventurous programming spanning many periods and genres, including work commissioned specifically for the group. The Washington Post hails the ensemble’s sound as having both “exalting finesse” and “expressive power” and refers to their music-making as “spontaneous grace.” Cantus shares its superb singing, engaging stage personality and heartfelt interpretations with audiences across the country and at home in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Each year the artists of Cantus share their own love of singing with thousands of student singers through workshops and master classes to ensure the future of choral arts. Cantus is pleased to be able to share its music through performances, recordings and digital media.
