Cantabile Choirs of Kingston

Since 1996 the Cantabile Choirs of Kingston, under the leadership of Dr. Mark Sirett, have thrilled local and regional audiences in performances of a diverse range of choral music from Canada and around the world.

The choirs are famous in Kingston and beyond for joyful concerts full of non-traditional staging, diverse repertoire and singing which demonstrates great skill and enthusiasm. Over the years, Cantabile has grown to include seven choirs and over 250 voices, singing music which engages and entertains at every event.

From the beginning, Cantabile has provided musical education for choristers and audiences through this high standard of performance and quality choral literature. We honour all of Canada’s First Nations people and especially Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee Peoples, upon whose traditional territory Cantabile performs.

Cantabile’s choral season of five themed concerts, which often include invited guests of national and international acclaim, attracts a sell-out audience in our performance home, Sydenham Street United Church (The Spire.) “The concerts are  stimulating, joyous  and so soul enriching. My winter would not be complete without them.” S.N. Kingston

Please join us on December 22 and 23 at The Spire, Sydenham St United Church, for The Angels Sing. Cantabile Christmas concerts “transform our souls, heal our hearts, make our imaginations soar & offer peace to our weary spirits…” Bathe in the beauty of candlelight concerts imbued with the magic & nostalgia of the holiday season.

These concerts sell out very early, so purchase your tickets soon!
