Who are cantoSonor?
The male vocal quartet cantoSonor is made up of the three opera singers Markus Herzog (tenor), Ulfried Haselsteiner (tenor), and Michael Doumas (bass) along with the pianist turned baritone Florian Podgoreanu.
They first met at a production of Richard Wagner's "Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg" at the Tyrolean Festival Erl, Austria, in 2009. During the rehearsals they got along so well that they decided to form a vocal ensemble far away from old fashioned stereotypes.
Soon they asked the pianist Carlos Goikoetxea to accompany their wide repertoire from folk songs, classical and romantic part songs, evergreens from operettas and musicals, barbershops, jazz standards, and own compositions. Since they cannot deny their operatic roots, they also perform excerpts from the opulent world of opera.
With mellow voices and a bunch of humour cantoSonor offer various programs to entertain their audience. As their name suggests, their sonorours singing blends perfectly to a vibrant sound that needs no technical equipment to fascinate their listeners.
"Let us entertain you!" is cantoSonor's motto on smaller and bigger stages (e.g. their performance of Kurt Weill's "The Sevend Deadly Sins" at the renowned Tyrolean Festival Erl in 2014). Join the vocal harmony and immense fun of cantoSonor on stage!
