“The singing of Chanticleer is breathtaking in its accuracy of intonation, purity of blend, variety of color and swagger of style.” – The Boston Globe
Known the world-over as “an orchestra of voices” Chanticleer is a multiple Grammy Award-winning ensemble whose repertoire spans ten centuries, from Gregorian chant, to Renaissance polyphony and Romantic art song, to contemporary music, jazz, spirituals and world music. They are scheduled to perform on Wednesday, January 28 at 8 p.m.
