Celebrate Culture. Celebrate Sisterhood. Celebrate Song.
Join us for Part 2 of our concert series, "The Caged Bird Sings of Freedom" on May 22nd @ 7:30pm.
Inspired by Maya Angelou's poem, "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings", this concert series weaves together songs of imprisonment, courage, and resilience. It is a celebration of womanhood, an acknowledgement of suffering, and a tribute to those who continue to demand freedom. Our May concert includes songs from around the world, poetry, chamber music, and a powerful finale that includes the Newark Boy's Chorus, The Early Morning Singers, The Far Brook School Singers, and guest artist, Jenae Gayle. So buy your tickets and get ready as we lift our voices to sing.

Cantigas Women's Choir is a non-profit organization, made up of a diverse and inclusive group of women, based in Hudson County, NJ. As part of our mission, through the power of our voices, we work to connect audiences of all backgrounds by performing a broad spectrum of music, both ancient and contemporary, from singing traditions around the world. We come together to grow musically, connect with each other personally, and honor the people whose music we sing.
In addition to our community outreach, Cantigas has performed for the Eastern Division of the American Choral Directors Association (in 2010) and works from composers including Leonardo San Juan, Paul Hennessee, Lillian Redl, and Wassim Ibrahim, whose "Damascus Breeze" premiered at Cantigas's spring 2015 concert. In the summer of 2016, a group of Cantigas traveled to Buenos Aires to sing with sister choir Coral Femenino de Caballito and Coral San Cirano.
