Cantus One Giant Leap

March 31, 2021 @ 7:30 pm CDT

In One Giant Leap, Cantus celebrates the allure of outward exploration, the triumph of the human spirit, and the striving for excellence through innovation and technology.

Cantus looked to the night sky to shape One Giant Leap, which the acclaimed men’s chorus toured in 2019–20 in conjunction with the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission put two men on the moon. But One Giant Leap looks beyond that triumph to consider elements of why we sought to go to the moon: humankind’s capacity for wonder, our innate desire to discover, and, in doing so, to better understand our own place in the universe.
