Barrington venue welcomes Cantus vocal ensemble

Vocal ensemble Cantus will perform at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, in the third floor ballroom at Barrington's White House, 145 W. Main. St. Tickets are $30 for adults, free for students 18 and younger with a paid adult. For tickets, visit or call (224) 512-4066.

Cantus will perform their program "Brave," in which the group examines what it means to identify as a man in a society that prizes conformity over personal authenticity.

It takes strength to be vulnerable. It takes courage to ask for help. It takes confidence to reach out and connect. With works by composers from Fanny Mendelssohn to Sara Bareilles, "Brave" takes a nuanced look at evolving ideas of masculinity.

The program also includes works by contemporary innovators like Mari Esabel Valverde and Sydney Guillaume, as well as a new, multi-movement work by Griffin Candey. Cantus' "Brave" is a powerful program that asks: Are you strong enough to be sensitive?

The low-voice ensemble, featuring eight vocalists, is known for its warmth and blend, innovative programming, and riveting performances of music ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century. Enjoy a vocal ensemble that seamlessly blends their voices to create a rich performance.
