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. Dr. Benjamin Kornelis conducts the choir.

Recent repertoire includes:

  • The Farmer is the Man, arr. DeCormier
  • Hard Times Come Again No More, Foster, arr. Keller
  • Soon-ah Will Be Done, arr. Dawson
  • I Thank You, Jesus, arr. Morris

  • Woodpecker, Chatman
  • It was a lover and his lass, Harris
  • O mistress mine, Harris
