Cantus Novus, a semi-professional vocal chamber ensemble based in Bloomington, Illinois, was founded in 2001 to provide outstanding performance opportunities for distinguished community vocalists in Central Illinois.

 

The group has developed a notable reputation in the performance of a varied repertoire of sacred and secular works. The ensemble's ranks include several music educators as well as those with just a personal passion for music.

Cantus Novus is honored to be directed by Matt Davis, May 2023 MM candidate in choral conducting at Illinois State University.

 

Our accompanist is Somlee Lee, also of Illinois State University school of music
