Online Library

This library is a celebration of the hard work and creative collaborations of Classroom Cantatas participants over the past twenty-two years.

The cantatas and recordings are a resource for classroom teachers who need a catchy tune to help their students remember a math concept, music teachers looking to incorporate composition into their own classes, or anyone wishing to share our collective history and culture—from the civil rights movement, to stories of immigration and celebrating diversity—with young people.

The cantatas from Dearborn Middle School and Fenway High School were written in partnership with the Max Warburg Courage Curriculum.
