Welcome from David Hoose

Every Cantata Singers season has proven fascinating, searching, and engaging. This year may be exceptionally so. With familiar and unfamiliar music, shifting contexts of the known heard anew and the unknown clarified, this expansive range of expression has become emblematic of Cantata Singers, as has the search for powerful connections among the myriad composers’ thoughts.

We all—singers, instrumentalists, staff, board, music director—welcome each of you, hoping you find deep rewards throughout this year. We think you will.

David Hoose,
Music Director
