About Cantori New York
Praised by the New York Times for its “spirit of exploration” and qualities of “virtuosity and assurance”, Cantori New York feted its 30th year in 2014, always faithful to its mission of presenting new compositions as well as neglected works that deserve the public’s attention and appreciation. Three-time winner of ASCAP's “Adventurous Programming” prize in recognition of its audacious repertoire, Cantori New York has acquired a solid reputation as an accomplished and innovative vocal ensemble. www.cantorinewyork.org
