Trinity English is pleased to announce that we will host award winning Chanticleer in concert on Friday evening, October 11, at 7:00 p.m. Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker magazine, and named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America in 2008, the multiple GRAMMY® award winning ensemble was founded in 1978 in San Francisco. The ensemble is comprised of 12 professional singers that hail from across the U.S. and gives approximately 100 concerts a year throughout the world, appearing regularly in New York, Boston, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Chicago, and Paris, as well as its home base of San Francisco. Chanticleer’s repertoire spans ten centuries from Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony and Romantic art song to contemporary music, jazz, spirituals, and world music. Its program at Trinity English in 2003 left those in the filled-to-capacity attendance spellbound.
Since Chanticleer began releasing recordings in 1981, the group has sold well over a million copies and won two GRAMMY® awards. They have been featured on National Public Television, and A Chanticleer Christmas is broadcast annually on over 300 affiliated public radio stations nationwide.
With the help of individual contributions, foundation, and corporate support, the Ensemble involves over 5,000 young people annually in its extensive education program. The 2010-2011 season saw the creation of the Louis A. Botto (LAB) Choir—an after school honors program for high school and college students—which was added to the ongoing program of in-school clinics and workshops, Chanticleer Youth Choral Festivals™ in the Bay Area and around the country including the National Youth Choral Festival every four years, master classes for university students nationwide, and the Chanticleer in Sonoma summer workshop for adult choral singers. The Singing Life—a documentary about Chanticleer’s work with young people—was released in 2008.
Tickets (general seating) are now on sale at the receptionist desk Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at 405 West Wayne Street (use Washington Boulevard entrance). Adult tickets are $20 and student tickets are $10. The concert will be one you will not want to miss, and it will be one to which you will want to invite friends, relatives, coworkers, and neighbors! Order your tickets by calling (260) 426-3424 or send an e-mail to Receptionist@TrinityEnglish.org.
