GERROD PAGENKOPF, countertenor, is excited to be singing a second season with Chanticleer.  A native of Northeast Wisconsin, Gerrod received his Bachelors of music education from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and also holds a Masters degree in vocal performance from the University of Houston where he was a graduate fellow under Katherine Ciesinski.  A specialist in early music, Gerrod has performed with many early music ensembles throughout Boston and Houston including Ars Lyrica Houston, the Handel and Haydn Society, Blue Heron Renaissance Choir, Exsultemus, and the prestigious Church of the Advent in Boston's Beacon Hill.  In his spare time, Gerrod enjoys exploring San Francisco, geeking out to 17th century Italian madrigals, and finding the best iced coffee in every city he visits!
