The Rooster Returns
If you've never had the extraordinary pleasure of hearing Chanticleer, there's no better time to remedy that situation than Christmas. Named for the "clear singing" rooster of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, the Grammy-winning a cappella all-male "orchestra of voices" and only full-time classical vocal ensemble in the U.S. is famed for its seamless, pure sound, versatile repertoire and infectious good cheer, guaranteeing an experience of sheer delight. This week, Chanticleer returns to Disney Hall for its annual holiday concert of Christmas music that includes everything from medieval and Renaissance sacred and secular works to traditional carols, gospel spirituals and "venturesome" new music. But get your ticket now, as this event tends to sell out fast.
