ABOUT THE CONCERT

Chanticleer’s 2017/18 Season commences with a program of war and peace.

A Chanticleer Christmas

December 10-23, 2017

ABOUT THE CONCERT

We follow the journey of the wise men, across the ages and the world. Our fellow pilgrims are a motley group of shepherds and onlookers–Welsh, Huron, Indian, English, Americans of all origins–reveling in the wonder, joy, and peace that the Christmas story brings. Candle-lit Gregorian chant gives way to music by Morales, Gonzalez, Victoria, Poulenc, Sweelinck, and traditional carols, gospel and spirituals.

Then & There, Here & Now

June 9-16, 2018

ABOUT THE CONCERT

Then and There, Here and Now promises to be an emotional trip down memory lane, kicking off the celebration of Chanticleer’s 40 years as an “orchestra of voices.” The program will recall the “Then and There” through our favorite composers and compositions by Stucky, Sametz, Bates, and Chen Yi; classic Chanticleer folk, pop, jazz and gospel from our favorite arrangers Jennings, Puerling, McGlynn, Peterson, Price, Hinman, Ward; and the heart-rending early music by Victoria, Gibbons, Palestrina, Byrd and others with which we started. A new work by up-and-coming star Matthew Aucoin will round out the “Here and Now” of this program that will go on tour around the World throughout our 2018/19 40th Anniversary Season.
