Welcome to Cantus.

A place where you belong.

Idaho’s largest community choral program for youth 8-18 years old. Serving youth all over the Treasure Valley.

Everyone gets in.
Cantus Youth Choirs has an ensemble for everybody.

All singers who join get placed in a group. If you can sing, if you just think you can sing, and even if you think you can’t sing, there is an ensemble for you. Say hello to a new circle of friends!

We meet on Tuesday.
Rehearsals are held in the center of the Treasure Valley.

We call it “Cantuesday” and most youth consider it the highlight of their week. Ensembles meet for 75 minutes between 5:30pm to 9:30pm. Check details for ensemble rehearsal times and location.

Six directors.
Competent and compassionate leadership.

Cantus Youth Choirs believes good music has the power to change the world. Cantus leaders model hard work, citizenship and community-building through music instruction and mentorship. You’re in good hands.

More than just a choir.
We sing, we dance, but most importantly, we share.

Cantus Youth Choir hosts two productions each season: the Winter Concert and the Season Finale. These productions combine special effects, video, lighting, singing, choreography and thousands of staging cues that showcase the talents of professional instrumentalists, guest artists, technical crews, and Cantus youth.

An experience designed for the whole family.

Energizing rehearsals, inspiring concerts, transcendent music, exposure to youth from across the Treasure Valley, and lifelong friendships are just a part of what you’ll get out of Cantus. With a tiered tuition plan, sibling discounts, payment options, and financial aid, Cantus has made it easy to join.
