Cor Cantiamo

Cor Cantiamo, a young professional choir from the Chicago area, in a balanced program of varied reperoire, premieres a new work commissioned by the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music and the Briner Lectureship of First Presbyterian Church of Kalamazoo. The work, by composer Daniel Knaggs, “Hear My Voice,” is a cry for an end to hatred and violence—a prayer for peace. The text consists of five “invocations” which come from words delivered by John Paul II at the Hiroshima Peace Memorial (Japan) on Feb 25, 1981, preceded and followed by relevant passages from the Psalms.

Cor Cantiamo was founded in the spring of 2009. Its mission is  to perform contemporary choral music and foster new composers for the art form. All of the members are professional musicians living in the Chicago area and almost all are alumni of the NIU Choral Program. They work as soloists, private voice teachers, and public school music educators.

In addition to singing in Cor Cantiamo, members of this ensemble perform with the Chicago Symphony Chorus, Grant Park Chorus, Santa Fe Opera, New Classic Singers, St. Charles Singers, and in solo recitals.
