Iconic ‘Chanticleer’ ensemble awakens Armstrong Auditorium on April 2 | Arts & Entertainment

Edmond, Oklahoma – Recognized around the world as an “orchestra of voices,” the all-male chorus Chanticleer takes the Armstrong Auditorium stage on Tuesday, April 26, at 7:30 pm

“Chanticleer’s sound is exceptional, and I remember it being especially conducive to the acoustics here at Armstrong,” said Ryan Malone, program director for Armstrong Auditorium. “We are thrilled to have such power and purity of voices back on our stage.”

The all-male chorus’ album “Chanticleer Sings Christmas” recently won a Grammy for Best Engineered Classical Album.

After the longest performance break in Chanticleer’s history, the ensemble has embarked on its latest concert tour, “Awakenings.” Featuring a repertoire including music by William Byrd, Claudio Monteverdi, and Augusta Read Thomas, as well as new commissions by Steven Sametz and Ayanna Woods, Chanticleer’s reemergence is, publicists for the group declare, “filled with rousing choruses and a renewed sense of purpose .”

Founded in 1978, the GRAMMY® award-winning Chanticleer has performed across the globe. The ensemble is comprised of twelve singers and has sold more than one million albums along with winning numerous awards. Named for the “clear-singing” rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, Chanticleer is known for its interpretations of a wide variety of genres ranging from Renaissance music to contemporary works.
