A liberal arts education is preparing me to be well rounded, and I believe that will be a great attribute when looking for a job.
The present version of the Cantus Femina was developed in the spring of 1996 at the express request of students interested in singing this single-gender material in an informal setting. In response to a significant increase in the number of women interested in singing at Mount Union, the Cantus Femina became a formal offering of the Department of Music in the Fall 1996 semester. The ensemble studies choral literature written exclusively for women and spends a significant amount of time developing the fundamental singing skills and musicianship of each member.
