KANTOREI

The college’s chapel choir, Kantorei, is a mixed ensemble directed by Dr. Karen Black. The choir performs a variety of sacred music and provides leadership for campus worship. Kantorei appears at events both on and off campus, collaborates with Ritterchor and St. Elizabeth Chorale in Christmas with Wartburg, and performs annually with the Handbell Choir.
