Kantorei is a Denver-based choral ensemble comprising volunteer singers under the direction of managing artistic director Joel M. Rinsema. Kantorei’s choral artists reside throughout the greater Denver area and have studied at schools with strong music programs across the United States. Some serve as choral music educators, church choir conductors, and vocal instructors. Others are doctors, social workers, clinical psychologists, accountants, realtors—all brought together in weekly rehearsals for shared artistic excellence and community.
Kantorei frequently performs at major choral conventions, has toured around the world, and works with composers and conductors of international renown. Its first international recording, released in January 2018, Kim André Arnesen’s Infinity: Choral Works (Naxos 8.573788) climbed to the No. 2 best-selling classical album on iTunes, No. 6 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Albums Charts and No. 19 on the overall Billboard Classical Albums Chart. Santa Barbara Music Publishing, Inc. publishes the Kantorei Choral series.
Kantorei’s mission is “to elevate the human experience through choral excellence.”
