Sponsored by Friends of Chamber Music, and called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker, the Grammy award-winning ensemble Chanticleer will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2018. Chanticleer is known for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from soprano to bass, and its original interpretations of vocal literature.
