Cantus Vocal Ensemble – 50% Off Tickets to Concerts in Stillwater and Edina

I am a HUGE choir nerd. I was in choir all four years of college (at UWEC – “Wisconsin’s Singing University,” thankyouverymuch) and I still absolutely love all things choral music.

I remember seeing Cantus in concert as an undergrad, and right now there are discount tickets available via Goldstar for two upcoming Cantus concerts! Tickets are $16 (50% off), plus service fees for the following two concerts:

Trinity Lutheran Church in Stillwater on Saturday, March 16 at 7:30 pm

Colonial Church of Edina on Thursday, March 21st at 11 am

If these dates don’t work for you, Cantus has other shows available with this same theme, albeit they won’t be at a discount.

“What kind of person do I want to be? How do I find someone to share my life with? What happens when I make mistakes?” When I Grow Up explores the path of self-realization. From childhood through adulthood, Cantus reflects on the cycle of life. Exploring themes of adolescence, companionship, parenthood, masculinity, and morality, When I Grow Up considers how we come who we are.
