The Cantorei Choir premiered “Ring Out, Wild Bells!” by Bradley Ellingboe in 2002, which was written specifically for Cantorei. The ensemble also premiered “Give Me Jesus” by John Helgen with Eric Kutz on cello in 2012.
Cantorei is a choral ensemble of approximately sixty-five sophomore through senior women. The choir performs throughout the year at campus worship services and concerts, Christmas at Luther, Homecoming and Family Weekend.
Founded in 1996 by Weston Noble, and directed by Linda Martin from 2005-2014, the choir is currently conducted by Jill Wilson. Cantorei also performs off-campus at area church services. Auditions for Cantorei are held each semester; all sopranos and altos on campus are invited to join.
