Program

If you’ve ever heard a performance by the group The New Yorker crowned “the world’s reigning male chorus,” we don’t need to say anything. If you haven’t, an evening spent with this ethereal a cappella chorus in the intimate surroundings of the Martin Theatre will make you understand why the New York Times raved, “These men are phenomenal: as fresh as a blade of grass, tightly focused and keenly expressive.” From medieval chant to folk music to 21st-century commissions, Chanticleer’s “orchestra of voices” will lift you to the heavens on a cushion of harmony.
