Cantate Musica


Cantate Musica is composed of approximately 50 young singers, grades 5-8, from all over northeast Ohio. These singers build performance and music reading skills as well as build healthy vocal production during their voice change years.  Cantate meets with Marie Cox once a week for a 2 hour rehearsal.

Cantate routinely participates in the following:

  • 3 Oberlin Choristers concerts
  • Cleveland Indian's National Anthem
  • Carlisle Holiday Lights - guest singers
  • Choristers Children's Honor Choir - guest choir
  • Musical community outreach projects

Once rehearsals begin, singers will be given a low-risk, comfortable voice evaluation for part placement in this choir (soprano, alto, etc.).

Please note *Boys with changing voices will be evaluated and placed in an appropriate choir for their voice.

Rehearsals are held once a week, September through April.
