$32,117 raised by 153 donors

Founded in 1988, Kantorei is a high-quality a cappella choral ensemble widely known for its stunning interpretations of choral music. We present the music of exciting contemporary composers as well as lesser-known masterpieces of the past, while fulfilling our mission of promoting life-long singing.

We’re back and looking forward to a great new season!

This year we welcomed Adam Reinwald as our new artistic director, replacing our founder, Axel Theimer, who retired after 33 successful seasons.

Adam's background includes 17 years with the male ensemble Cantus. He was also the assistant conductor of the National Lutheran Choir. He brings an intimate knowledge of the Twin Cities choral scene to an organization looking to re-engage the community following pandemic years of limited activity. He is fully committed to the principles of healthy vocalism that give Kantorei its distinctive warm sound and energy. He is building on the tremendous legacy of lifelong singing established by Axel. 

This season, we will sing some of the repertoire we prepared for Seasons 32 and 33 -- but didn't get to perform -- along with new pieces, with the goal of creating an emotional return to vocal music performances for both singers and listeners. 

Please consider a gift to help us make our goal a reality:

  • $5,000 establishes a Commissioning Fund for the creation of amazing new music for Kantorei to sing 
  • $2,500 funds Assistant Conductor Tony Rangel for half of a season
  • $1,000 sponsors a virtual performance with a custom dedication
  • $500 sponsors an instrumentalist for the Advent concerts
  • $250 funds a marketing promotion on a major media channel
  • $100 purchases new sheet music for Kantorei next season
  • $60 sponsors a Kantorei singer for a year (sheet music, folder, name tag, etc.)
  • $34 celebrates Adam's inaugural season
  • $25 helps offset mailing costs
  • or a custom amount of your choosing

Gifts of any amount are appreciated!  Your contributions allow us to keep producing choral music of the highest caliber and help us fulfill our mission of promoting life-long singing.

Every donation ensures that our ensemble remains accessible to all audiences, performs in beautiful venues around the Twin Cities, and shares the joy of singing for a lifetime. Please help us support our mission and share this page with your friends and family so our fundraiser is a success!
