Today, the group is a cohesive, solid mix, she said, with an ability to perform much more music than was possible when the chorus had only 14 members.

“As we all age, we are looking very much to bringing in younger people,” Nash said. “It can’t just be a chorus of gray-haired people; we have to expand it and bring in younger people.”

By doing so, the chorus ensures that it will continue to exist in another 30 years, she added.

In the spring, Cantemus will continue to mark its 30th anniversary on April 27 and April 28 with a concert celebrating of North Shore artists. It will feature works by New England composers and texts by New England poets.

“We’re celebrating our anniversary by celebrating our area,” Nash said.
