Cantabile (pronounced Kahn-TAH-bee-lay) is a community-based performing arts and music education organization.  Founded in 1996 as a community choral organization, Cantabile has grown to offer a wide variety of musical education and performance opportunities for singers of all ages. Cantabile is dedicated to maintaining the highest standard of musical excellence – our programs have been recognized internationally for innovation and artistry, and our performances often attract sell-out audiences. Cantabile operates a number of different programs including: parent & tot music classes, 7 choral education and performance programs, 5-concert subscription series, school outreach activities, audience sing-along movie screenings and other sing-along events, commissioning new choral works, recording, national and international touring, hosting annual guest-conductor/artist residencies, hosting an apprenticeship program for advanced students in singing, choral conducting, and/or collaborative piano, as well as outreach performances and events throughout the community.
