Dr. Zachary Colby’s recording with Cantus is released by American Public Media

Dr. Zachary Colby recorded with Cantus a special for American Public Media last season, which was released on May 1, 2020.


Zach ColbyJoin Cantus and host Julie Amacher for Alone Together, a special program highlighting mental health topics including depression and anxiety. The program is a collaboration with Call To Mind for Mental Health Month.

Finding human connection, and love, in this technological age. That’s what inspired the all-male ensemble Cantus to create Alone Together. The term, “Alone Together,” has taken on new meaning in this age of Covid-19 and social distancing. What does it mean to be “Alone Together,” and how do we find that connection? Music helps address those questions in this beautifully crafted program filled with popular music and classical pieces.

Be sure to check back Monday, May 4, for the premiere of Cantus’ new video of the Beatles’ “She’s Leaving Home,” and then later this month for the video of “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen.
