Dear Friends of the American Kantorei, 

With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to impact everyday life, we thank you for your continued support and wish you and your community health and peace. We know this has been an unprecedented and difficult year for everyone. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel!  As more and more of us are able to access a vaccine, the American Kantorei is cautiously but optimistically planning to return to making music and spreading the wonderful music of Bach throughout the St. Louis community.

Currently, we are working hard to prepare for our next concert on Sunday, May 22, at 3:00pm at St Paul’s Lutheran Church in Des Peres, MO.  However, we cannot continue our work without your support.  I hope you will consider a donation to the American Kantorei as we restart our operations. Your contribution will not only allow us to return to a ‘normal’ schedule for the 2021-22 Season, including our popular Messiah sing-along and ‘Bach and Beer’ events, but to bring our music to a wider and wider audience throughout the region!

There are three ways for you to give:

  • Make a one-time or recurring automatic donation via credit card through the Donate button found at the bottom of the page;
  • Make a check payable to: American Kantorei, P.O. Box 631, Chesterfield, MO 63006; or
  • You can also find us on Facebook at

Thank you so much!  We look forward to seeing you at our May concert. More than ever, Bach’s magnificent music is needed to offer hope and inspiration in such uncertain times.
