CANTUS: My Journey Yours

October 17 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$5

Cantus Vocal Ensemble presents a concert inspired by Elise Witt’s work of the same name. My Journey Yours considers why people leave home – by choice, by necessity, or by force – and how they adapt to their new homeland. This program honors the struggle, courage, and deep humanity of migration with music from around the world, as well as a newly commissioned piece by Melissa Dunphy, one of today’s most compelling compositional voices.

In addition to the in-person program, the performance will be live streamed at 7:30 pm CDT, Friday, October 22 and available on demand until 7:30 pm CDT, Sunday, October 31st. Online performance tickets are pay-what-you-can

Single tickets and subscription packages can be purchased at www.cantussings.org or by calling the Cantus box office at 612-435-0055.
