Over on Minnesota Public Radio’s classical music station, the male vocal ensemble Cantus has stepped up to be “artists-in-residence” for the 2010-2011 season.

As part of their residency, they’re performing concerts all over the state. And they’re also taking their music to some unusual locations. To a cave, for example… and under a street bridge.

The project is called “Minnesota Sounds” and features Cantus performing in places with interesting acoustics.

Here’s a recording of them performing in the Wabasha Caves, narrated by vocalist Tim Takach.

Got an idea for an unusual spot where Cantus could perform? Let MPR know.
