Utah’s Premiere Early Music Ensemble

Cantorum is a small, professional-grade choral ensemble that regularly performs and records sacred music of the Renaissance and Neo-Renaissance periods. By drawing on Utah’s finest singers of early choral music, Cantorum provides audiences with engaging performances that enlighten and educate, in addition to providing singers with a professional, intense and demanding choral experience, while maintaining a relatively low demand in terms of rehearsal time. Singers are auditioned for each season from the surrounding area, all coming from rich choral backgrounds, having sung with professional-grade ensembles in and out of the state, including The Salt Lake Vocal Artists, Utah Chamber Artists, The Mormon Tabernacle Choir, The BYU Singers and Ars Nova. Singers are expected to achieve professional levels of musicianship and singing in every aspect of rehearsal and performance.

Cantorum was founded in January, 2011 by Dr. Allen Buskirk to introduce early music to students and audiences alike. Since then, the ensemble has developed from a hobby choir to an elite ensemble that is sought-after throughout the state for its flexible and captivating performances.
