Alumni Professional Choir Seeks Your Help with First Commercial Recording

The NIU School of Music is proud to be associated with Cor Cantiamo, a professional choir that consists of overwhelmingly NIU School of Music alums and is now an Ensemble in Residence in the School of Music. Created and directed by Eric Johnson, Director of Choral Activities in the NIU School of Music, Cor Cantiamo has quickly earned a spot among the most respected professional choirs in the United States.

Recently, Cor Cantiamo was approached by Centaur Records to produce a recording of the music of noted Finnish composer Jaakko Mäntyjärvi. Because of the strong relationship that professor Johnson had already developed with Mäntyjärvi, this is a natural fit.

The recording sessions are complete, and the project is in it's final stage. As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Cor Cantiamo is seeking your help with bringing this project to its conclusion. Cor Cantiamo has a Kickstarter campaign underway, and they are on their way to realizing their goal. Please consider becoming a backer for Cor Cantiamo and clicking on the Kickstarter link above today!
