San Francisco, CA


Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker magazine, and named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America in 2008, the GRAMMY® award winning ensemble Chanticleer celebrates its 35th anniversary in the 2012-13 season during which it will perform more than 100 concerts in 29 of the United States, in Europe, and in the Asia/Pacific region. Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for their “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity,” Chanticleer – based in San Francisco – is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from countertenor to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to venturesome new music.  

Chanticleer’s 30-concert 2012-13 Bay Area Season opens in September with The Siren’s CallNew works by Chen Yi and Michael McGlynn will add exotic flavor to a program about the lure and danger of the unknown, which also features a Vince Peterson arrangement of Tom Waits’ “Temptation.” A Chanticleer Christmas is in high demand at the Christmas season, with performances from coast to coast in venues including New York’s St. Ignatius Loyola (beginning in 2013), Walt Disney Concert Hall, and churches and missions in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Chanticleer’s recent addition to its catalogue of best-selling Christmas CD’s is Our Favorite Carols.    A Chanticleer Christmas is broadcast annually on over 300 affiliated public radio stations nationwide.
