The Canticle Singers
Directed by Wendy Wickham (1997-present), the Canticle Singers is a professional-level women’s chamber choir ranging in age from 16 – 60. Highlighting compositions and textual settings by women composers/poets, we perform music from medieval to modern so that each audience member can come away with a favorite moment. The Canticle Singers performs regularly in winter and in spring. Whether featured in concert series or in community outreach venues, we bring a high level of artistry and joy to our music making.
Canticle Singers believes that music:
- unifies in a way that nothing else can.
- is healing, uplifting and restorative.
- stretches the audience and performers alike by challenging their intellect and nourishing their souls.
