We are so very thankful for Cantus Youth Choirs. We were privileged to have had a child join Cantus in it’s inaugural year and, because of his experience, three more of our children spent and are currently spending their junior high and high school years in Cantus as well.
Our children have not just received exceptional, musical instruction in chorale singing but have learned respect and kindness for directors and other students, to work with excellence in a group, leadership, to be responsible for expectations and details required of such an organization, to practice selflessness and to find joy and personal fulfillment in performing with heart for the benefit of others.
The staff at Cantus work incredibly hard to create an unforgettable experience for their students. My two kids have absolutely loved it.
I have had nothing but great experiences from this organization. Great directors and a great environment!

I got to be in Cantus for 3 years and it was one of my favorite parts of my high school years. I feel like I learned so much from each and every one of my directors. I enjoyed going to rehearsal each week and loved concerts and tours. I met lots of new friends and grew as a singer and as a leader. I am so grateful for my time in the choir and I loved all of my directors, they work so well with the kids. If you are reading this, you should join Cantus too! You won’t regret the opportunity and experience.

This choir has been so great for both my kids. My one son who is autistic finds that the environment is very safe, which can be very difficult to find. My daughter loves it too. The directors are kind, intelligent, and fun. I would and do recommend Cantus to everyone I know. Especially for children who have a hard time fitting in and making friends. I feel my kids not only learn great music but they also learning wonderful character building skills by the dedicated and loving directors.
These choirs were a highlight of my middle and high school years! I sang in Cantus for six years and had an incredible experience! I learned discipline, grew musically, and developed leadership skills, all while I sang with people who soon became some of my greatest friends.
Cantus helped me become more compassionate as I learned to look outside of myself and empathize with those who had different challenges than myself. The directors truly have the singers’ best interest in mind, and work tirelessly to create the best experience for them. I’ve seen it firsthand. Cantus is truly a remarkable organization that will teach lifelong lessons to those who participate. Highly recommend!

This choir has been amazing for all four of my children. The conductors are fabulous and the quality is top notch!
Cantus is so AMAZING! I have learned so much from the 7 years I participated in this youth choir. Every director I had treated me so kindly and they make sure everyone has a chance for a solo in some way. Good or bad. Everyone gets a chance for the spotlight.
Cantus is very professional. They make sure we stay on task and are the best we can be! To accomplish that they spent a lot of effort in to make sure rehearsal time was used STRICTLY for learning and singing music. So because they know we are crazy kids who just want to have fun they make sure they set up special get togethers So we can build friendships and relationships with the other kids.
Something that is unique about Cantus is that they allow anyone into the choir, even kids with special needs and need a safe place to go.
Cantus takes music to a whole new level. We spend hours just talking about what each song means to us personally so we can share our heart through music.
Beautiful good deeds this choir does
HIGHLY RECOMMEND FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS TO GROW IN THEIR LIFE.
