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 six 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.
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.
Please join us in 2016/17 for “Tradition & Innovation” and enjoy another season of exquisite and innovative choral music.
