Cantus: "All is Calm"

Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts

December 8

The adventurous nine-member choral ensemble Cantus, along with Theatre Latté Da, will perform works from its recording All Is Calm, a selection of songs, poetry, letters, and journal excerpts relating to the extraordinary World War I “Christmas Truce,” when soldiers on opposing sides of the battlefront who had heard each other singing carols put down their weapons to celebrate Christmas together.
