Cantamus Women's Choir was created in 2000, and is one of four major choral ensembles at Iowa State University. The women of Cantamus are selected by audition and range in year from freshmen to graduate students, and come from many fields of study across campus. They all share an enthusiasm for new and challenging repertoire, along with a love for adventurous programming. Recent commissions include works by Pietro Ferrario, Ko Matsushita, Levente Gyöngyösi, Abbie Betinis, Eric Barnum, and Nathaniel Adams. Cantamus annually presents a four-concert season, which includes a tour and a choral orchestral Masterworks Concert. The ensemble rehearses three times a week, and music majors comprise ten percent of its membership. Cantamus has received invitations to give solo performances for the 2004 and 2010 North Central ACDA Conferences, the 2004 National MENC/NAfME Convention, and the 2013 National ACDA Conference.
