Kansas City, MO – The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts has announced that Chanitcleer will perform on October 24 in the Helzberg Hall. This event is part of the 2018-2019 Kauffman Center Presents series.
Chanticleer is a 12-person vocal ensemble. Known as “an orchestra of voices” for its seamless blend of 12 male voices ranging from soprano to bass, Chanticleer performs original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz and popular genres, as well as contemporary compositions. Since Chanticleer began releasing recordings in 1981, the group has sold well over a million albums and won two GRAMMY awards.
Tickets for Chanitcleer range from $19 to $59 plus applicable fees and go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. Friday, March 2. Tickets will be available through the Kauffman Center Box Office at (816) 994-7222, via the Kauffman Center mobile app, or online at www.kauffmancenter.org.
Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker, the San Francisco-based GRAMMY Award-winning ensemble Chanticleer will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2018. The 40th anniversary tour – Then and There, Here and Now – is a panoramic look at Chanticleer’s complete musical history, featuring classical pieces, traditional songs, and modern melodies. Chanticleer was founded in San Francisco in 1978 by Louis Botto. The group performs about 100 concerts each year in the U.S. and abroad. Named for the clear-singing rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, Chanticleer has won several GRAMMY Awards for classical ensemble and classical composition recordings.
