Since 2006 the Cantabile workshop has appreciated the beautiful setting and facilities at Mount Carmel. Rolf Anderson, Kay Hoffland, and Rikka Estenson are the clinicians for this weekend. Participants sing music for mixed choirs, children’s choirs, men’s choirs, and women’s choirs. The schedule allows for some time to relax and share ideas with other church musicians.

Here are some comments from the Cantabile 2017 workshop participants:
♪ My choir looks forward to music that I bring back from Mount Carmel.
♪ Good balance of sessions and free time. Not rushed at all which is refreshing.
♪ I appreciate the high quality of music and variety of styles and difficulty levels.

I will praise the LORD as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God all my life long. Psalm 146:2
