Cantare Con Vivo is a non-profit choral music organization located in the East Bay that encompasses two adult choirs, in-school music educaiton, and after-school youth choirs. Founded in 1987, Cantare inspires people to live in harmony, treating one another with dignity. This drives our mission, rooted in choral singing that unleashes passion and draws us together across generational, cultural, geographical, and eocnomic boundaries. Cantare remains committed to uncompromisingly high standards of musical excellence.
Today, Cantare's adult choirs are among the finest choral ensembles in the Bay Area, performing six to eight concert programs each season. Cantare's children's program provides music education and choral singing to 3,000 underserved Oakland youth. Cantare was the proud recipient of Chorus America's 2014 Education and Community Engagement Award.
