We're looking forward to the
Fall 2021 semester
and are thrilled to welcome back
Dr. Allegra Martin
as our interim music director!

As Cantilena prepares for a year of transition, we are focusing on the basics: rehearsing safely together, presenting a live performance, and reengaging our audience.


To accomplish all we hope for during our 2021-2022 season, member-paid dues are not enough. We need you.


Your generous donations help us focus on making music instead of raising funds.


Thank you so much!

The Cantilena Board of Directors is excited to announce that, after 16 long months, for the Fall 2021 semester we will be returning to a hybrid model of rehearsing that will include in-person and remote attendance options under the deft leadership of our former Artistic Director and now Interim Music Director for Fall 2021, Allegra Martin!

In addition, we intend to culminate our season with a live performance for your safe viewing pleasure. As the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic shift, flexibility is the name of the game. Please be patient as we work out all the details before we share more with you.


To our dear audience and greater Cantilena community, your support and generosity over this past year is so deeply felt and appreciated; we hope to share some of the virtual work we have accomplished this past Spring with all of you soon!


To Cantilena singers, please keep an eye out for a Fall newsletter with our upcoming schedule, dues information, and health and safety requirements for the coming season.

Cantilena knows that music has a history of accompanying protests, whether in the rhythmic cadence of chanting, or in voices rising together in song.

Inspired by our membership, we stand with organizations who seek to change the world for the better. We send our heartfelt support to all those who have lost family members to racist violence, and we reject all forms of discrimination and injustice.

We raise our voices in solidarity:
Black Lives Matter.

Are you interested in working with a

well-established women's chorus which is passionate about making music?

We'd love to hear from you!

We are looking for a permanent music director!
