Mission Statement

Kantorei's mission is to elevate the human experience through choral excellence.

Organization History

In 1997, six friends with a passion for singing decided to form a choir capable of embracing a broad range of a cappella choral music. Now in its 21st concert season, Kantorei has expanded into an auditioned ensemble of 55 volunteer singers from the Denver metro area under the direction of Joel Rinsema. We are nationally recognized as one of the more exciting community-based choirs to emerge in decades. Among hundreds of performances in and around the Denver Metro area, the choir has been honored to accept invitations for performances at Carnegie Hall in New York City (2003) and St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican (2007). In 2018, Kantorei was honored to be chosen for the 3rd time in our history to sing for the national conference of the American Choral Directors Association, to be held in Kansas City. Our first professional recording was released in May 2017 and climbed to #2 on the iTunes classical chart in the first month.

Testimonials

"The Denver area as well as the entire region is extremely fortunate to have in its midst an outstanding professional choir in Kantorei...Having performed at state, regional, and national conventions of the American Choral Directors Association, it is an ensemble that garners national respect for its choral artistry, commitment to excellence, and consistently high level of artistic achievement."

--- Dr. René Clausen, composer and conductor of the Concordia College Choir

It has been my privilege to hear Kantorei several times in the last decade. I am always struck by their programming and artistry. They are one of the finest choirs in the West.
