“Forest City is a rather secluded area, at least a couple hours away from any major city.  Nonetheless, our community is rather artistic, and the WCAS gives us the opportunity to bring very talented and amazing artists to our community.” Dr. Kristin Taylor, WCAS Coordinator, said. The WCAS is now in it’s 26th year.
 
Dr. Taylor also discussed the benefits of Waldorf students being exposed to various types of artistic forms, helping to generate new ideas and styles. “[WCAS] also demonstrates how talented the upper Midwest is!  We have so many extremely good musicians in our area, and it’s wonderful as the coordinator of WCAS to have the means to show this to our community and encourage younger generations to go after their dreams.” she said.
 
Cantus shares its impeccable singing, engaging stage personality and heartfelt interpretations with audiences across the country as they tour and at home in Minneapolis and St. Paul. At home and on the road, the artists of Cantus share their own love of singing with thousands of student singers annually to ensure the future of choral arts. Cantus is pleased to be able share its music through performances, recordings and digital media.
