Cantio is a music society dedicated to bringing together music lovers, musicians and vocalists to explore a rich diversity of vocal music across genres, centuries and cultures. You need not be a performer to join; rather, you need only be curious and enthusiastic about singing. We host meetings, lectures, performances and master classes each month, and produce several concert events each year. Our monthly get-togethers include performances and lively, interactive discussion. Join us to sing, listen, learn and make new friends. See you soon!
New Meetup event! : Cantio presents, 'One Hit Blunders: The Best Flops on Broadway'
Musical theater in the US centers around Broadway in New York City. To paraphrase a famous lyric, if you can make it there, you'll make it anywhere! But for every blockbuster Tony-Award-nominated hit show, there are dozens of commercial failures. But not every flop is completely forgotten - some have one good song that goes on to become a hit, others have their songs re-used in later works that are more successful, and some get turned into movies that go on to become cult classics.
Join us (Mun Wye, Yann and friends) as we explore several songs from shows that didn't quite make it on the Great White Way!
This is going to be a "Cantus" event, our meetups where anyone can join to perform. If you would like to sing, please send me a private message before 15 July. If you need a pianist to accompany you, please also include your sheet music in your message or email, so we can work on it ahead of time! If you play and sing, then just RSVP and come on down! :)
To cover costs, we are collecting $10 for entry at the door, and $5 for food. However, if you bring a bottle of something to share, you get to join in for free!
