Grammy Award-winning Chanticleer – based in San Francisco – is cherished for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from counter-tenor to bass. This world-renowned "Orchestra of Voices" performs original interpretations of a vocal literature, from Renaissance, jazz, and gospel to venturesome new music.
"The singing of Chanticleer is breathtaking in its accuracy of intonation, purity of blend, variety of color and swagger of style" (The Boston Globe). Nowhere do they sound better than in the superb acoustics of Spivey Hall, where their every performance is cause for celebration.
Temptation and its dangers are evoked by The Siren’s Call, featuring new works by Chen Yi and Michael McGlenn, two composers long associated with Chanticleer. Musical seduction by Montedverdi, Gesualdo, Barber, Poulenc, John Corigliano, and Mason Bates, (among others) will culminate with a new arrangement for Chanticleer of "Temptation" by Tom Waites, followed by a selection of folk songs, jazz tunes, and spirituals.
