Cantare Children’s Choir, formed in 1997 by Founder / Artistic Director Catherine Glaser-Climie, is dedicated to providing an extraordinary choral music experience through excellence in performance, outstanding music education, serving the community through song, and touring. Cantaré has established an enviable reputation for the musical sophistication its exuberant members express and for its gorgeous tone and impeccable technique. In addition to presenting its own acclaimed concert series, this award-wining choir is honored to have performed for many prestigious events including for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II [in Ottawa], and in collaboration with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Calgary Opera, and the Calgary Civic Symphony.
Boys and girls ages 6 to 18 come together in one of four ensembles to share in the very finest sacred and secular works representing all styles from the Baroque to challenging contemporary pieces. Commissioning new works is an important part of our program with over fourteen projects to date.
Cantaré has won awards at the local, provincial and national level including First Prize at Canada’s National Music Festival. Concert Tours across Canada, the United States and Europe enhance the experience with once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
