About The Cantabile Chamber Singers
The choir was originally formed as an advanced ensemble to further founder Cheryll Chung’s development as a conductor. After their inaugural benefit concert in 2006, a group of students and colleagues in Cheryll’s “practice choir” approached her to consider forming an ensemble where they could continue to make music together and also make a difference in society. And so, the Cantabile Chamber Singers was born.
The choir performs a diverse musical repertoire, from Palestrina to Whitacre up to music from the current decade. Their musical expertise has led to performances under many notable conductors, including Maestro Helmuth Rilling, Maestro Peter Oundjian, Dr. Doreen Rao, and Dr. Jerzy Cichocki.
Keeping with its mission and vision of community outreach and social justice issues, Cantabile is a not-for-profit organization whose members share the common vision of music helping to bring awareness to social issues such as poverty, discrimination, and illness. The choir often performs at benefit events for charities and non-profit organizations dedicated to a wide variety of causes.
The Cantabile Chamber Singers ultimately hope to enrich the lives of those who come to their concerts, and more importantly, those who benefit from them.
