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. In the summer of 2023, Cantigas traveled to Ireland to sing in conjunction with Diva Voces Female Choir to perform the premiere of Sean Doherty's original composition "Eternal Rebel" based on a poem by Eva Gore-Booth.
