Just few hours ago, I had the chance to watch for free the concert of the all-male vocal ensemble, CANTUS, a group from Minnesota. It was held at the Performing Arts Center in Brookings, South Dakota.
I am not really a fan of classical music, but when CANTUS started singing -- only one word I uttered right then and there -- WOW!

Amazingly wow! With all songs sang in a capella and with uniquely blend of voices, it will pull you towards loving the classics.

Their repertoire spans many periods and genres, including Gregorian chant, Renaissance motets, contemporary sacred works, art songs, world music, spirituals, and pop. Cantus’ singing has been called “spontaneous grace” by the Washington Post and “wonderful” by the L.A. Times.

For the past years, CANTUS has gained the recognition as one of America's finest professional male vocal ensembles. The group have included performances throughout the U.S. and it made its European debut at France's Polyfolia Festival.

CANTUS has already recorded 8 CDs on its own label, Cantus Recordings.

CANTUS members:

Tenors: Eric Hopkins, Aaron Humble, Micheal Jones, Gary Ruschman, Shazore Shah

Baritones: Dashon Burton, Adam Reinwald

Basses: Tom McNichols, Tim Takach
