David Hoose, Music Director

44-voice SATB chorus

Cantata Singers was founded in 1964 to prepare and present what was then a long-neglected repertoire—the cantatas of J.S. Bach.  Since that time, led by such distinguished music directors as John Harbison, John Ferris, and David Hoose, the group has expanded its repertoire to include works from the seventeenth century to the present day.  Winner of the 1995 ASCAP/Chorus America Award for Adventurous Programming of Contemporary Music, the organization is dedicated to challenging programming, including the commissioning of new works.
