Founded in 1973, Kantorei is the School of Music’s premiere choir. Consisting of thirty-two singers (smaller groups available for performances) and selected by stringent auditions, they ably represent the best vocalists at the UI. Kantorei is available for concert performances featuring repertoire from the great choral masterworks to contemporary composers. Kantorei regularly performs at the UI and around the state, and has been honored by several of their tour invitations including their 1994 invitation to participate in the World Choral Festival in South Korea. They were one of only five choirs invited to participate in the Festival.
