Chanticleer to Perform in October 

Arts & Entertainment

Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by the New Yorker, the San Francisco-based GRAMMY® award-winning ensemble Chanticleer has just celebrated the 40th anniversary of its 1978 founding. 

Chanticleer will perform in Sewanee on Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 7 p.m. The performance will be in All Saints’ Chapel, and seating will begin at 6:30 p.m. 

Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for its “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity,” Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for its seamless blend of 12 male voices ranging from soprano to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz and popular genres, as well as contemporary composition. 

Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the door the evening of the performance or in advance by emailing <hrward@sewanee.edu>.
