Mission Statement:

To educate audiences, enrich lives, build community and bring vitality to past and present through music of the highest professional quality.

 

Kantorei Choirs of Greater Kansas City, a professional vocal ensemble whose membership consists of music educators, full and part time performers, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to educating audiences by performing music selected from the Medieval period through the 21st century. We specialize in concerts that explore the historical links between music of all eras and art, politics, literature and culture, and most importantly,  all with an attention to detail and performance practice. Concerts feature a wide variety of excellent music ranging from Schutz to La Bamba, from medieval chant to sophisticated arrangements of traditional folk music. Kantorei combines these in ways that serve the ensemble's broader artistic vision. We also presents the Kantorei Summer Choral Institute each summer bringing young people into the fold.

 

Kantorei has embarked on the mission of providing choral music opportunities in a rather unique way.  Our ensemble offers singers a concentrated but high quality choral experience.  We will be performing three times each year.  A Christmas concert and a Spring concert as well as our Kantorei Summer Choral Institute will round each season.  

 

We are committed to innovative programming of exceptional music, attention to intonation and nuanced musical detail, and extraordinary choral sound. Kantorei features many of the Metro's finest professional singers as well as some wonderful young talent, who bring a stunning palette of vocal colors, impeccable control, and sensitive musical expression.  We specialize in concerts that explore the historical links between music of all eras and art, politics, literature and culture, and most importantly,  all with an attention to detail and performance practice.
