The Kantorei is an auditioned group of 24 exceptional singers, drawn from the Chorale and Concert Choir, who maintain a busy performance schedule singing in concerts, area worship services, and civic and campus events. The Kantorei focuses on choral literature that is especially appropriate for a small ensemble, including Renaissance polyphony and vocal jazz. Mr. Ryan Smit conducts the choir.
