Cantemos is an auditioned, chamber ensemble that specializes in music from Latin America, singing repertoire primarily in Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin. This group was officially formed in 2008 and performs at all public concerts of the Upper Canada Choristers. Formed with a nucleus of choristers originally from Venezuela and Colombia, most of the singers in Cantemos sing with the larger choir as well. Cantemos transcends borders and cultures, speaking the universal language of music and reflective of the diversity inherent to the Upper Canada Choristers. Many, but not all, singers are fluent in Spanish and/or Portuguese.
Cultural ambassadors of Latin choral music through unique, compelling performances.
Cantemos’ mission as a diverse chamber group is to enrich Canada’s cultural mosaic by interpreting and promoting Latin choral music.
