PENINSULA CANTARE continues to make an important contribution to the choral music scene in the Bay Area since it was founded in 1971 at Cañada College. The enthusiastic, experienced choral singers come from the mid-peninsula and beyond. CANTARE is dedicated to keeping alive the great choral masterpieces and exploring new music for the education and enjoyment of our audiences. Program repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to the twenty-first century; from a cappella literature to major works with orchestra. In addition to Bay Area concerts, the choir has traveled on six international tours. The most recent was to Brazil in 2007 with members of Masterworks Chorale.

Spring Season: Echoes of Love

After the audience's enthusiastic response to our holiday concert, Peninsula Cantare looks forward to our spring season and a concert featuring the theme of "love" on April 18. We are actively seeking new members and encourage experienced singers to contact us. See our audition page for details.

New Singers Welcome!

Do you love to sing? Are you a church singer looking for variety? Looking for a friendly group of singers and an outstanding director?

Then join us in Peninsula Cantare! We are a community choir based in Palo Alto. We are welcoming new members this spring.

Our spring concert, "Echoes of Love" will dive into all aspects of music about love. The choir will sing music from all time periods about Love, Yearning, and Lust. Highlights include Eric Whitacre's "Five Hebrew Love Songs" as well as music by Duruflé, Debussy and the Beatles. There is a little something for everyone!

We rehearse on Tuesdays, 7:30-10 pm, in the sanctuary of Covenant Presbyterian Church at 670 E Meadow Drive in Palo Alto (next to Mitchell Park). There is a nominal tuition to join the choir and buy the music. Please join us at our first rehearsal on Tuesday, January 27! Registration Form
