                                         Chanticleer – The Siren’s Call

Named for the “clear-singing” rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, this Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble ” fascinates and enthralls for much the same reason a fine chocolate or a Rolls Royce does – through luxurious perfection.” -Los Angeles Times

Celebrating its 35th anniversary, Chanticleer, the only full-time classical vocal ensemble in the United States, has developed a remarkable reputation for its vivid interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz and from gospel to venturesome new music. With its seamless blend of twelve male voices, ranging from exquisitely pure countertenor to rich bass, the San Francisco-based group has earned international renown as “an orchestra of voices.”

Just saw Tosca at Segerstrom Hall last night– a very well-done semi-staged production!  Kudos to Pacific Symphony and Pacific Chorale, as well as a strong cast. Tenor Brian Jagde as Cavardossi and George Gagnidze as Scarpia were absolutely outstanding! Also wonderful to see my student Vincent Hans in the chorus, as well as my former student Alex Bodrero as one of the supernumeraries.
Great to see friends and colleagues as well, including the wonderful baritone, Aram Barsamian. Two more performances February 23 and 26. Go if you can!
