History of Cantorum


Cantorum logo webThe Jefferson City Cantorum was founded in 1967 by J. Patrick Healey and Grayson Peters. Originally a mixed double quartet, it quickly grew into a choral group.

 

The Jefferson City Cantorum has performed with the Jefferson City Symphony Orchestra and the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra in Missouri as well as in the Cork International Choral and Dance Festival in Ireland. They have performed in the Governor’s Mansion, on the steps of the Capitol during July Fourth celebrations, for civic groups and at other community events.

 

The Cantorum performs a variety of music, ranging from classical to popular. The group’s shows have included “The Mikado,” “Pirates of Penzance,” traditional American music, patriotic and Broadway musical revues, and most recently, a review of songs from the 20th century.

 

Involved in local schools, the J Patrick Healey Scholarship, created in April 2005, is presented each spring to qualifying area high school seniors.  

 

”Friends of Cantorum” was also created in 2005, helping to provide financial support for our music, auditorium rental fee, costuming and equipment.
