The GRAMMY Award-winning  12-member vocal ensemble Chanticleer has been hailed as “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker.  They are known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of twelve male voices ranging from countertenor to bass, with a wide-ranging repertoire and dazzling virtuosity.

 

“They are, to put it directly, one of the world’s best.”  – San Francisco Chronicle
