I Cantori of Walla Walla University
The university’s select choir, an auditioned group chosen from the 1,900-member student body, enjoys a history of touring that began in 1929. Renamed I Cantori (Italian: “the singers”) in 1979, the ensemble has traveled extensively in the Pacific Northwest and western United States and appeared also in Canada, Russia, and Romania. Since 2011 they have performed at Oakland’s magnificent new architectural wonder the Cathedral of Christ the Light, at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral (Seattle), St. James Cathedral (Seattle), Christ Church Episcopal (Tacoma), the Co-Cathedral of Saint Theresa (Honolulu), the historic Kawaiaho’o Church (Honolulu) and, in southern California, at St. Cyril of Jerusalem Church, Loma Linda University church, and the Vallejo Drive Seventh-day Adventist Church. Their repertoire focuses on classical church music but includes a wide variety of mostly sacred styles. The choir regularly performs for the 2,000-member Walla Walla University Church of Seventh-day Adventists and offers a major concert each quarter on campus. Tours are funded by the University and generous donations from interested supporters.
Coming Friday 22 November 2013 I Cantori's new CD Eternity Alone.
