In this time of COVID, we are re-examining our lives, regarding what is really important. Just as a child grows, so does an institution, and often adolescents and young adults tweak their names in part or fully change them to embrace aspects of their identities (marriage, shedding of nick-names, adopting new names for professional reasons, branding, etc…) The Canticle Singers has been so named for over 25 years now. In that time, we have seen tremendous changes in the world, and while the name is just a title, it reflects the inner core of our beliefs as singers, our overall mission, and our vision. Since the onset COVID, we have come to appreciate the necessity of creating communities, and the joy of in-person singing that simply cannot be experienced any other way.
As we gathered again, I posed the question – “What does Canticle Mean to you?” While the query was first posed to our singers, we would love to hear from our extended family of supporters. Let us know your thoughts. We look forward to hearing from you!
