Musikanten announces 20th season of performances

Artistic Director Kerry Krebill announces Musikanten’s 20th season of performances in Helena.

Musikanten Montana is a choral chamber ensemble of nearly 24 singers, rehearsing 6:30-9 p.m. Tuesdays at St. Peter’s Episcopal Cathedral.

The group sings classical music from all periods, from Gregorian chant to newly commissioned works, and encourages new (and old) singers to join for this anniversary season.

Musikanten’s 2023-24 concert schedule includes their annual Candlelight Concerts for All Souls on Nov. 1-2 (music of Howells and Victoria); an Epiphany concert in January; highly anticipated performances with period-instrument friends in March, and the return of Helena Choral Week June 16-23.
