A new, professional vocal ensemble and chamber orchestra in Oklahoma City dedicated to presenting concert experiences that are engaging, exciting and inspiring.

We re-envision what a performing ensemble can be: breathing new life into old masterpieces and bringing fresh vitality to our art.

The Concert Experience

Rooted in the classical tradition, TACTUS performs great music on innovative concert programs. Our repertoire includes music that is more than a thousand years old as well as music that is brand new.

Highlights from Recent Concerts

A concert remembering the suffering caused by war throughout the centuries. The performance features music written during the Thirty Years War—which began 400 years ago, when conflict and plague ravaged Europe—juxtaposed with music from the First World War, including works by composers who fought in the trenches. Prayers for peace, settings by various composers of the same text—“Grant us peace, Lord, in our time”—are joined by ballads and elegies for the fallen.


Featuring works for choir, string orchestra, solo voice, and mixed ensembles. Sung in English, French, German, and Latin, with projected English translations.

Who We Are

TACTUS is an ensemble of professional singers and instrumentalists with active careers as performers and teachers. Our members are talented musicians who have performed nationally and internationally and who share a love of excellent music-making.

TACTUS (pronounced tock-toos)

is a Latin word meaning touched, moved or felt.

It refers to the pulse or beat that undergirds every piece of music.

Rather than build a concert around an ensemble — the old model for a symphony concert — TACTUS instead builds its ensembles around the music selected. This allows for flexibility, innovation, collaboration, and artistry at the highest level.
