As one of the nation’s few full-time vocal ensembles, Cantus has come to prominence with a distinctive approach to creating music. Working without a conductor, the members of Cantus rehearse and perform as chamber musicians, each contributing to the artistic process and helping to create programs that give voice to shared human experiences.
In Brave, Cantus examines what it means to identify as a man in a society that prizes conformity over personal authenticity. With works by a broad range of composers including Fanny Mendelssohn and Sara Bareilles, Brave takes a nuanced look at evolving ideas of masculinity. The program also includes works by contemporary innovators such as Mari Esabel Valverde and Sydney Guillaume, as well as a multimovement work by Griffin Candey. Cantus’ Brave is a powerful program that asks: are you strong enough to be sensitive?
Presented in collaboration with Arizona Musicfest.
