Cantamus Women’s Choir

Cantamus Women’s Choir was created in 2000, and is one of four major choral ensembles at Iowa State University. The women of Cantamus are selected by audition and range in year from freshmen to senior, and come from many fields of study across campus. They all share an enthusiasm for new and challenging repertoire, along with a love for adventurous programming.

Recent commissions and world premieres include works by Pietro Ferrario (Italy), Ko Matsushita (Japan), Levente Gyo?ngyo?si (Hungary), Eriks Esenvalds (Latvia); Ambroz? C?opi and Andrej Makor (Slovenia), and Abbie Betinis, Eric Barnum, Kevin Memley and Stacey Gibbs from the United States.

Cantamus has received invitations to give solo performances at the 2013 and 2017 ACDA National Conferences, the 2004 and 2010 ACDA Regional Conferences, the 2004 MENC National Convention. In addition, Cantamus receives annual requests from Walton Music to professionally record new music for its advanced Women’s Choir series.
