About Cantori New York
Cantori New York, praised by The New York Times for its “spirit of exploration” and “virtuosity and assurance,” celebrates its 30th season, featuring new and neglected works that deserve to be performed and heard.
A three-time winner of the ASCAP/Chorus America Award for Adventurous Programming, Cantori has repeatedly won recognition from The American Prize. Cantori has established a strong reputation for artistic excellence, innovative programming and imaginative collaborations with distinguished musicians and actors. Cantori’s collaborators have included Kathleen Chalfant, Maryann Plunkett, Nadia Sirota, Bradley and Douglas Balliett, the Cassatt String Quartet, Prism Saxophone Quartet, and the Gregg Smith Singers. Appearances have included the opening season of Zankel Hall with Michael Tilson Thomas, Great Performers at Lincoln Center, World Financial Center Arts & Events, and multiple collaborations at Lincoln Center (Rose Theater, Avery Fisher Hall, Alice Tully Hall) with the verismo company Teatro Grattacielo.
Cantori’s recordings, on labels such as Arsis, Albany, Newport Classics and PGM, include The Metamorphoses of Paul Crabtree, Echoes and Shadows (contemporary American choral works), FIVE by Michael Dellaira, and the first CD recording of Frank Martin’s Le Vin Herbé, which was an Opera News Editors’ Choice.
