We rehearse on “Cantuesday”
All ensembles meet weekly on Tuesday nights. Each “Cantuesday,” nearly 300 kids gather from Eagle, Boise, Meridian, Kuna, Middleton, and Star to make music together. Weekly rehearsals are an ideal combination of fun and hard work. Many of the ensembles meet concurrently, allowing for socializing during passing times.
Please note the new grade designations per ensemble for Season 10:
We rehearse September through December, January through April
Semester one begins in September and goes through December, ending with our Winter Concert. Semester two starts in January and goes through April, culminating with our Finale Concert.
Please check CALENDAR for specifics.
We rehearse at the center of the Treasure Valley: Tree City Church
We rehearse at the center of the Treasure Valley, at Tree City Church on Eagle Road between McMillan Road and Ustick Road: 3852 N. Eagle Road, Boise, ID 83713.
Singers are allowed 3 absences (20%) each semester, not counting illnesses. These absences should be budgeted carefully to include concerts, tournament games, family travel, etc. Please budget wisely. Consistent attendance is critical to the success of the choirs. Singers are expected to be early to and attend all rehearsals. Please see the Cantus Handbook for further details.
Because of the limited rehearsal time each week, singers in all of the Cantus Youth Choirs are expected to practice regularly outside of rehearsal. Rehearsals are dedicated to polishing music; therefore, it is crucial that singers learn their notes at home. There will be deadlines given for each singer to have their music memorized. We may provide practice recordings, but each singer will have a packet of music that they can take home to practice.
