Kantorei, based in Denver, Colorado, is a premier choral ensemble comprised of volunteer singers under the direction of artistic director Joel M. Rinsema. Kantorei’s choral artists have studied at schools with strong music programmes from across the United States, such as Augustana, Brigham Young, Concordia, Luther, Oberlin, St Olaf, and Wartburg, and many serve as choral music educators, conductors and teachers.
Kantorei frequently performs at major choral conventions across the US, has toured around the world, and works with composers and conductors of international renown. Kantorei has recently sung under the batons of René Clausen, Simon Carrington, Eric Whitacre, Karen Kennedy, and Anton Armstrong. Kantorei has also commissioned and premiered new choral works from renowned composers including Kim André Arnesen, Eric William Barnum, Abbie Betinis, René Clausen, Ola Gjeilo, Joshua Shank, and Eric Whitacre.
Kantorei performs a broad range of a cappella choral music and has as its mission ‘to elevate the human experience through choral excellence’.
