About the Cantible Choir

Cantabile, which takes its name from the Italian musical term meaning “in a singing style”, is a community choir which has been in existence for over 25 years and has been incorporated as a not -for-profit association since 1992.

Based in the Melbourne suburb of Preston, the choir devotes itself primarily to a capella (unaccompanied) music.  Repertoire ranges from Renaissance sacred music and madrigals through to contemporary compositions and settings of folk and popular music.  The ensemble performs by invitation at festivals, community gatherings, church services and private functions as well as presenting concerts of its own.  As it is a small ensemble, it suits singers who are looking for the challenge of knowing that their contribution is crucial to the overall sound, and who enjoy working on blend and dynamics in a very sensitive context.
