Join us...

for Season 14:
from Sunset to Sunrise

Welcome to the 2016 | 2017 Performance Season

Live the Story
  In the choral art, music brings words to new life. A group of singers comes together to become one collective voice, sharing a message and evoking emotion through poetry, traditional sacred texts, and stories old and new. For thirteen years Cantare Houston has presented unique programs showcasing music from all eras and genres with one goal in mind: sharing the story of the music with our audiences.

Experience the Passion
The people of Cantare, singers and board members alike, are from a variety of professions. We are teachers, doctors, professional singers, accountants, and business owners; we work in both the public and private sectors.  Our vocations are as diverse as the genres of music we perform. However, we have at least one quality in common: we are all passionate about music, and our audience members share this sentiment. We are thrilled to have you join us as we continue our tradition of choral storytelling this season.

From Sunset to Sunrise

1000 Beautiful Things
Treat yourself to an evening of world-class music and dining. Cantare Houston and Apollo Chamber Players join forces to present a smörgåsbord of music to satiate any appetite. We will feature music from Haydn, Ola Gjeilo, The Beatles, Swingle Singers, Ben Folds, original folk melodies from Spain and Russia, and American spirituals. You’ll enjoy a three-course dinner, complete with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, while savoring breathtaking views of downtown Houston at sunset.
