Kantorei: Keeping Traditions Alive
Our goal is simple. We take pieces of art that many would consider old and lost, or new and unheard of, and we breath new life into them. Everyone understands the need for Art museums, but for some reason many do not look at performance art in the same way. We aim to present music created all over the world and across the centuries with equal attention to detail. Whether it is a well known choral classic by Palestrina, an obscure Mass by a relatively unknown ancient composer, or a brand new composition by a young composer trying to make a name for him or herself. In any any case, we will present the music as an insight into a culture, a time, and a place, all by an ensemble of highly trained, professional musicians.
We Need You!
You don't need to know about music to enjoy it. And it is tempting to conclude that you don't need to know about music to understand it, either. (After all, if you have enjoyment, who needs understanding?) We would argue that the more a person understands the music the more he or she will get out of it. That is where you come in! With your help we can educate and entertain much larger audiences with presentations of ever increasing quality and variety.
Why donations? You sell tickets...
Classical music groups, much like art museums, never cover their costs with ticket sales. We absolutely cannot survive without your generous support. Kantorei operates on a shoestring budget and still our ticket and CD sales cover only %25 of our expenses.
Here are some of the worthy projects that your dollars will help bring to fruition:
Another exciting season of high quality choral programming in the most beautiful venues in Kansas City.
The continued growth of our youth outreach program. Kantorei Summer Choral Institute enters its 5th year in 2017!
A continued regular schedule of creating world class choral recordings here in Kansas City.
