The internationally acclaimed vocal group Chanticleer will be the final performers in the 2009-10 Festival Series. The all-male ensemble, known around the world as an “orchestra of voices,” is making its second appearance at BGSU.
The concert will be held at 8 p.m. March 3 in Kobacker Hall of the Moore Musical Arts Center. A free, pre-concert forum will be held at 7:15 p.m. in Bryan Recital Hall to introduce audiences to the group and its repertoire.
Based in San Francisco, Chanticleer is renowned for the seamless blend of its 12 performers, ranging from countertenor to bass, as well as the group’s original interpretations of vocal literature varying from Renaissance to jazz and gospel to venturesome new music.
Inducted into the American Classical Music Hall of Fame in 2008, Chanticleer was also named the 2008 Ensemble of the Year by Musical America; the New Yorker magazine dubbed it the “world’s reigning male chorus.”
Tickets are $36, $28 and $20 for adults and $29, $22 and $15 for students. For ticket information, call the box office weekdays from noon-6 p.m. at 2-8171.
