Cor Cantiamo is excited to announce that the Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation Fund has awarded a grant to our organization. This fund is set up to provide assistance to further music education, music appreciation, and performance and has been awarded to us through the DeKalb County Community Foundation.

We are grateful to the Wurlitzer Foundation Fund for this grant to help expand our mission to perform and promote contemporary choral music and foster new composers for the art form. Connections like these in the community mean a great deal to us and we hope we can keep them strong. “The support we receive in DeKalb County is an essential building block in supporting our mission. The Wurlitzer Foundation Grant will benefit the goals at the heart of our organization,” Dr. Eric Johnson, Founding Artistic Director of Cor Cantiamo.

At one time The Wurlitzer Company was known as… ‘the name that means Music to millions’, we hope to highlight that one-time slogan and bring music to as many of those millions as we can. Through this grant, our possibilities have grown and we hope to reach even more individuals because of it.

"Cor Cantiamo is an outstanding chamber choir and a committed champion of contemporary choral music. Under the baton of Eric Johnson the ensemble brilliantly performed several of my most challenging works. Maestro Johnson and Cor Cantiamo represent choral artistry at its finest and it was a distinct privilege to participate with this gifted conductor and splendid choir in concert." Morten Lauridsen, NEA-Designated “American Choral Master” Recipient, 2007 National Medal of Arts
"It was a delight to hear Cor Cantiamo in concert at the Central ACDA convention. They welcome contemporary repertoire in to their programming seamlessly, and with open arms.
