Cantiamo! is the WSU Faculty Vocal Ensemble within the School of Music, performing annual recitals (generally in January) and other guest performances throughout the year.

This ensemble is comprised of Julie Anne Wieck (soprano), Lori Wiest (mezzo-soprano), Christopher Nakielski (tenor), and Aaron Agulay (baritone). Joining together to perform a diverse yet harmonious array of solo, duet and small ensemble vocal literature, their recent performances have included themes such as “Nature and Music”, “From Broadway with Love and Laughter”, “Animal Magnetism”, and “The Many Moods of Mozart”.
