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. During the 2019-20 season Chanticleer will perform 57 concerts in 28 of the United States and Puerto Rico, 21 concerts in the San Francisco Bay Area, and 10 on a European tour to Germany, France, Poland, and Italy.  At the end of the 2019-20 season, Chanticleer will return to Australia for the first time since 1997 for 10 concerts in 8 cities, and make its debut in New Zealand.

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 twelve 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.
