Cantabile is an auditioned 45-member choral ensemble in Boulder County, Colorado, dedicated to presenting high-quality performances of a wide range of music, ancient to contemporary, including classical, jazz, gospel, and folk music from many cultures. Our members are volunteers of various ages, backgrounds, and musical experience, and include trained musicians as well as skilled amateurs.

We strive to bring our appreciation and love of music to Boulder County and to provide opportunities for both aspiring new professionals and seasoned performers. Our concerts include professional soloists and guest instrumentalists.

Founded in the late 1970s as the Saint Cecilia Singers, Cantabile continues to evolve in our efforts to perform challenging and diverse music to enrich the Boulder County community. We offer performances at affordable ticket prices to reach a wide audience. Cantabile performs three concert programs each year, and brings our music into libraries, senior residences, and other venues for free public outreach performances.

Cantabile is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit arts organization. Cantabile has received support from the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District, the Boulder Arts Commission, the Boulder Library Foundation, and the Community Foundation of Boulder County.
