Chanticleer is a full-time male classical vocal ensemble based in San Francisco, California. Over the last four decades, it has developed a major reputation for its interpretations of Renaissance music, but it also performs a wide repertoire of jazz, gospel, and other venturesome new music and is widely known as an ‘Orchestra of Voices’. It was named for the ‘clear singing rooster’ in Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales.

This famous group offers us a wonderfully eclectic program, focusing on the great Renaissance choral composers, then branching out to popular, folk and Romantic repertoire.
