MONDAY, DECEMBER 3 AT 1:30 PM
Chanticleer, the world's reigning male chorus, will make a special appearance to kick off the holiday season at J&R Music and Computer World with a special performance and autograph signing on Monday, December 3 at 1:30PM. Chanticleer will perform songs from their newest Christmas CD, Let It Snow, which features the ensemble with the Chanticleer Holiday Orchestra performing such favorites as Feliz Navidad" and The Christmas Song."
Chanticleer - based in San Francisco - has developed a remarkable reputation for its vivid interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to venturesome new music. With its seamless blend of twelve male voices, ranging from countertenor to bass, the ensemble has earned international renown as an orchestra of voices." Since 1994, Chanticleer has recorded exclusively for Warner Classics, making the group's recordings available worldwide. In 2005 Sound in Spirit, a mosaic of sacred chant from across time and cultures, was released. In 2004, the ensemble released How Sweet the Sound: Spirituals and Traditional Gospel Music featuring guest artist Bishop Yvette Flunder. Colors of Love won the GRAMMY Award in 2000 for Best Small Ensemble Performance and the Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award for Best Classical Album. The world-premiere recording of Sir John Tavener's Lamentations and Praises was released in January 2002 to critical acclaim, and garnered two GRAMMY awards, for Classical Best Small Ensemble Performance and for Best Classical Contemporary Composition. Chanticleer's three Christmas recordings are especially popular, as is the DVD of the 2002 Christmas concert at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
