About the Performance

The world’s reigning male chorus.” –The New Yorker

Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for its “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity,” the Grammy award-winning ensemble Chanticleer celebrates its 40th Anniversary in 2018! Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for its seamless blend of twelve male voices ranging from soprano to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz and popular genres, as well as contemporary compositions.

For their anniversary season, these masters of choral music, under the direction of William Fred Scott, will perform 51 concerts in 21 of the United States, and 8 in Poland, Germany, France and Spain. Since Chanticleer began releasing recordings in 1981, the group has sold well over a million albums and won two Grammy awards.  Chanticleer’s return to Stewart Theatre is not to be missed!

The program on November 3, Then and There, Here and Now, is a celebration of the ensemble’s 40th Anniversary. The evening will feature music by some of Chanticleer’s favorite composers, from Palestrina and Victoria to Mason Bates and Steven Stucky, lustrous examples of the South American baroque, as well as audience favorite arrangements by Jennings, Shaw and others. Then and There, Here and Now reflects the expansive aesthetic and seamless virtuosity in ensemble singing which have been Chanticleer’s hallmark for four decades.
