MERIDIAN —      Cantore, a men's a cappella group from Harrisonburg, Va., will perform at Jubilee Mennonite Church in Meridian on Friday, Jan. 18 at 7 p.m. A free-will offering will be taken.

    The group has been performing for more than 10 years, have produced four CDs, toured in six states and given hundreds of concerts in their local community. Most performances are in church-related settings, but they have also sung at banquets, festivals, retirement communities, civic events and male chorus festivals in Virginia, Pennsylvania and Florida.
