After many performances during the December holiday season, Cantabella Children's Chorus is preparing for an exciting spring and summer. Rehearsals began last week in Livermore, Pleasanton and Dublin as more than 200 choristers from kindergarten through twelfth grade prepare new repertoire. This is Cantabella's twentieth season.

A once-in-a-lifetime summer is being planned for Cantabella's Honors Choir. This July, the choristers will travel to Cincinnati, OH, where they were invited to perform and compete at the internationally acclaimed World Choir Games (WCG). Also known as the "Choir Olympics," the WCG began in Linz, Austria in 2000. It is held every two years, and has previously been hosted in Austria, Korea, Germany and China. This is the first year the event has been hosted by the United States. Cantabella Honors Choir members, consisting of auditioned choristers in grades 6-12, have trained and practiced for hundreds of hours to represent the Tri-Valley community at this event. During the WCG, over 20,000 choristers representing more than 70 nations will gather together to sing and share their love of music before nearly 90,000 spectators.
