The Albert Lea Cantori will begin its spring season on Monday. The Cantori is a community-based choral ensemble singing sacred and secular music from Baroque to some of today’s newest composers.

Members of the Cantori are people who love to sing and make music together. According to a press release, potential members do not need to be soloists, they just need to have a good ear and  love to sing. While reading music is helpful, it is not required.

Anyone interested in singing with the Cantori is invited to come to an open audition rehearsal with the entire ensemble. Following the rehearsal, those who audition will be asked to meet briefly with the director. Those selected will be notified within a couple of days ater the rehearsal. There are openings for each section.
