Cantorum is an auditioned chamber choir based in Ponsonby, Auckland. The ensemble of 20-30 experienced voices sing a range of music under the guidance of Anita Banbury. We strive to improve the understanding and appreciation of Renaissance and Baroque styles of music for both singers and audience.
We perform a number of times during the year, including concerts, Evensong, and Christmas Carols at MOTAT.
Our next concert will be at 5pm on Saturday 10 December 2022, but in the mean time we have two Evensong appearances, one in Ponsonby, and one in Huapai.
Since February 2018 Cantorum has been working under the leadership of Anita Banbury. Under her professional direction the choir has flourished and has continued to improve and learn.

“Lovely – look forward to the next concert” – Jeanette Wong (Magnificat concert)
“Gorgeous textured music by a surprising variety of English composers beautifully sung and enunciated” – Miriam Frances (Magnificat concert)
