The Cantata Singers, pausing for a quick photo op before our 2017 Christmas concert at New Beginnings United Methodist Church. The performance of seasonal music accompanied by trombones, violin, flute, recorder and some fun percussion brought the audience of around 320 to their feet after the carol sing that concluded the program! It was a great Christmas!

This year, join us at Notre Dame High School on Lower Maple Avenue in Elmira on Sunday, December 16th as we celebrate music of the holiday season with the Notre Dame choral program and lots and lots of brass!

2018-2019 SEASON Events and performances

The 2017-2018 Season is now a part of Cantata Singers history, and a rousing success it was! We are already working towards great 2018-19 season with a Christmas collaboration with Elmira's Notre Dame High School choir on December 16 and 17, 2018, another performance of the incredible "World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass" with Monroe Crossing, the band that created the first recording with Vocal Essence for whom the work was written, and an extra special event to end the season in honor of all who suffer from or care for Alzheimer's or other dementia patients. We will perform "Alzheimer Stories" by Robert Cohen, a work that was commissed by the Susquehanna Valley Choral just down Route 15 south of here. This will be our greatest season ever!
