Kantorei, The Singing Boys of Rockford, has released a new CD celebrating its 50th anniversary. The CD, titled How Can I Keep From Singing?, features 75 minutes of songs performed by local singers, ages 7-18 from around northern Illinois.
“This is a wonderful CD that highlights some of the best songs performed by the Kantorei choir,” said Dennis Harezlak, Kantorei Board member. “It is a great way to celebrate Kantorei’s 50-year history while entertaining anyone who enjoys superior choral performances. The new CD is a lasting testament to the retiring Kantorei director, Joel Ross. Kantorei is currently searching for a new full-time director.”
How Can I Keep From Singing? includes an array of songs, including “I Will Sing With the Spirit,” “Cry Out and Shout,” “Amazing Grace” and “Ride the Chariot.”
The 2013-14 season is Kantorei’s 50th anniversary season and is celebrating making a difference in the lives of hundreds of young men. For more information about how to order the 50th anniversary CD, How Can I Keep From Singing?, visit www.kantorei.com or call the business office at (815) 963-2544.
