Take this survey on reopening Cantus for Season 11 Posted on June 15, 2020June 15, 2020 by Keith McCauley Step 1 of 4 25% We want to make sure that what we offer to our singers when we resume will be a Cantus-caliber experience. While our circumstances may be different, we want to make sure we resume in a responsible way so that our singers can feel safe while making beautiful, musical, life-long memories.Regardless of what we decide, we are still subject to decisions by our rehearsal facility, Tree City Church, and our performance venue, NNU, for groups of our size.The responses of this survey will not impact tour. We are still planning on our 2021 spring tour to Anaheim and Disneyland.Regardless of what happens with other Cantus ensembles, we plan to hold some version of the high school contemporary groups in the fall. Their small size makes it much easier to plan for them.We anticipate fully resuming all rehearsals as usual in January, ending with the Season Finale.Safety is our number one priority. We will continue to research and follow the recommendations of local authorities before coming to final decisions.Our family ...*IS interested in exploring options for participating in Season 11 of Cantus.IS NOT interested in participating in Season 11 of Cantus.We're sorry to hear that!

The earliest we will know their decision is August 2020. If we are able to fully resume, we will have a late start in October 2020. Masks will be optional.Rehearsals via Zoom or Google MeetsIf Tree City Church does not permit us to resume rehearsals at their location, we may hold rehearsals via video conference.Rehearsal rotationsIf there is a limit placed on how many people we can host at Tree City Church, then we may create a rotation for families to rehearse in person and through Zoom or Google Meets. For example, some families could rehearse in person on 1st and 3rd Tuesdays, and rehearse via Zoom or Google Meets on 2nd and 4th Tuesdays.Concerts at NNU, like usualWe are subject to a private university's decision on whether or not we will be able to use their auditorium for our concerts.Matinee and evening concertsIf NNU determines that we can proceed with the Winter Concert at a limited audience capacity, then we may need to produce two or more concerts on the same day.Music video project (not a virtual choir)In lieu of weekly rehearsals and a formal concert, Cantus may offer a music video recording project. Singers would pay a reduced tuition to participate. Singers would learn their part, test their part, and then record their part in a solo booth at a professional recording studio, and then participate in an outdoor group videography session. This music video would be released on YouTube, and the audio would be released on Apple Music.Please list all singers interested in the Music Video Project idea.*Name Parent/guardian name First Last Parent/guardian email Enter Email Confirm Email CommentsDo you have any additional feedback, concerns, questions, or criticisms you'd like to share?
