Uniform & Concert Attire

Cantiamo consists of four choirs beginning at the age of 5 through to age 19, and ranging in musical development from very beginner to accomplished. As such each choir has its own unique uniform and concert attire that suits the age of the choristers and level of performance, but also complement each other so that together the choirs are unified as Cantiamo.
