People come to Chanticleer in Sonoma because they love singing. They love us, but first and foremost they want to spend 4 days doing nothing but singing, and talking about singing. For many - especially for example high school choir directors- it's a purely enjoyable escape just for them. The days are long and full, and capped by socializing and entertainment. First thing today, Eric gave a German class. The tutti rehearsal followed. After lunch the small ensembles met with their Chanticleer coaches. Brian and Marques gave a session on African American music. Then we had an open rehearsal followed by q and a., and then it was dinner time.
