It’s almost unbelievable that 2020 will see Chanticleer’s very first Australian tour, after decades of international acclaim. Founded in 1978, the group is America’s leading full time professional vocal ensemble, with an enviable record of awards, recordings, Grammys, and nearly 100 commissions under their belts.
This is unaccompanied singing of a rare and beautiful kind, as twelve male voices blend seamlessly in enchanting music that ranges across centuries and styles.
“The world’s reigning male chorus.” The New Yorker
