“These men are phenomenal: as fresh as a blade of grass, tightly focused and keenly expressive.”—New York Times

This Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble has been hailed as “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker and celebrated as “an orchestra of voices” for its wide-ranging repertoire and dazzling virtuosity. Founded in San Francisco in 1978, Chanticleer has rightfully assumed its place as one of the most prolific recording and touring ensembles in the world. For its first visit to Athens in more than eight years, the singers perform classical and contemporary works featuring their signature sound, as well as new arrangements of songs by Judee Sill and Jacob Collier.

Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 pm (free admission) by Gerrod Pagenkopf, Chanticleer’s Assistant Music Director. 

Free shuttle transportation to this performance is available for Clarke County seniors, thanks to a partnership between the Performing Arts Center and the Athens Community Council on Aging. For more information, click here.
