Music and outreach converge in the Lawrence University Concert Choir and Cantala Women's Choir Presto! Tour.

Presto! includes three days of music, education and community work in Chicago, with visits to a women’s homeless shelter, several local high schools and the Merit School of Music. It all culminates with two public concerts in Chicago. The concerts have a $15 admissions fee, but are free to students, music teachers and guidance counselors. All proceeds will be donated to participating outreach programs.


The 34-member Lawrence University select ensemble Cantala, under the direction of Phillip Swan and Stephen Sieck, is a women’s choir at Lawrence’s Conservatory of Music in Appleton, Wis. Its repertoire consists of traditional women’s literature, world folk literature and contemporary works. Along with Cantala, Lawrence’s 44-member concert choir will also be in attendance, with its repertoire including traditional and contemporary secular and sacred choral literature.
