The Cantabile Youth Singers of Silicon Valley have been described as “a blast of clean mountain air” by Richard Scheinin of the San Jose Mercury News and “angels dressed in street clothes” by San Francisco Classical Voice. Based in Palo Alto, the organization offers singers ages 4-18 a comprehensive choral music education that encourages a lifetime appreciation of the arts. Their next performance is at the Schultz Cultural Arts Hall at the Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto.
“I invited them to our stage because their music embodies hope, beauty and joy,” said Elisheva Salamo, Senior Adult Program Manager at the OFJCC. “I want the audience to enjoy the next generation and to be inspired.”
According to Cantabile’s Executive Director Eman Isadiar, the group is on the cusp of some exciting opportunities. They commissioned a new piece titled "Breakthrough" by renowned composer Stephen Hatfield, are participating in the prestigious Windy City Children's Choral Festival in Chicago this June, and are undertaking their very first studio recording this summer. Past highlights include performing alongside the world-famous Kronos Quartet as part of Stanford Lively Arts and participating in the National Children's Choir Festival at Carnegie Hall.
Cantabile’s performance at the OFJCC this Sunday is free for adults 65 and over, free for children 12 and under, and $5 for everyone else.
