This is the second year of the Regents Cantorum, an extracurricular choir in the Logic and Rhetoric schools. “Starting the Cantorum last year was a God thing,” says music teacher Kara Faraldi, “Three of us, separately, came up with the idea at the same time and the synergy gave it momentum.” So far the Cantorum has performed the national anthem at sports games, as well as pieces at multiple school events like Christmas Chapel, Grandparents Day and more. “My goal is to get the choir out in front of the school community so we can be a blessing to the community and also to show what our students are capable of. I hope this will be a way to equip students to sing more advanced works, and continuing to develop high-level musicianship skills that will enable us to sing sacred music in its original form. We are really in a building year, and it’s exciting!
