About Cantori New York
Cantori New York, praised by The New York Times for its “spirit of exploration” and “virtuosity and assurance,” celebrates its 28th season of programming featuring new and neglected works that deserve to be performed and heard.
A three-time winner of the ASCAP Award for Adventurous Programming, Cantori has built a strong reputation for artistic excellence and innovative programming, including an evening of theatrical choral music with Tony Award winner Maryann Plunkett. Cantori’s collaborators have included the Cassatt String Quartet, Prism Saxophone Quartet, and the Gregg Smith Singers; appearances have included the opening season of Zankel Hall with Michael Tilson Thomas, Great Performers at Lincoln Center, and World Financial Center Arts & Events.
Cantori’s recordings include The Metamorphoses of Paul Crabtree, Echoes and Shadows (contemporary American choral works), and the first CD recording of Frank Martin’s Le Vin Herbé, which was an Opera News Editors’ Choice.
