Chanticleer- She Said/He Said

Chanticleer- She Said/He Said

Presented by Irvine Barclay Theatre at Unknown

Celebrating its 36th anniversary, Chanticleer 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.” 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 The complex and emotionally charged dialogue between the sexes is the subject of She Said/He Said. Godliness bestowed upon women (by men) is extolled in works by Andrea Gabrieli and Eric Whitacre. The bawdiest of Renaissance Madrigals, standards by Cole Porter and Ravel’s dramatic Trois Chansons will revisit this age-old topic.
