DCHS to Participate in
Cantus High School Residency Program
Dassel-Cokato High School will be participating in the Cantus Residency Program this school year.
Cantus (pronounced 'con-toos) is a professional nine member male vocal ensemble that tours extensively throughout the United States and around the world. The residency program consists of four visits to each high school throughout the year and a festival day and culminating concert in April. The program is free to the school, and students receive complimentary Cantus concert tickets as well.
Mr. Nate Raabe, choral instructor, submitted an application last year to be a part of the Cantus High School Residency Program, and DC was chosen as one of three schools to take part in the program. The other schools are Minnehaha Academy and Irondale High School.
