Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker magazine, and named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America in 2008, the San Francisco-based, GRAMMY® award-winning ensemble Chanticleer embarks upon its 36th season in 2013-14, performing in 23 of the United States. Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from countertenor to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz, and from gospel to venturesome new music.

About the 2014 concert, "She Said/He Said":
The complex and emotionally charged dialogue between the sexes is an eternal theme for composers, from the bawdiest of Renaissance Madrigals by Willaert and Monteverdi through standards by Cole Porter, by way of Ravel’s dramatic Trois chansons. In another vein, godliness bestowed upon women is extolled in works by Andrea Gabrieli and Eric Whitacre. She Said/He Said will feature female voices as diverse as Hildegard von Bingen and Stacy Garrop, German Romanticism from Brahms and Fanny Mendelssohn, and songwriting by Joni Mitchell. The program will conclude with new arrangements by several arrangers contributing fresh material to Chanticleer’s popular and jazz repertoire. Many of these arrangements will be featured on Chanticleer's new studio album, Someone New, released in the fall of 2013.
