The Iconic Chanticleer Ensemble Wakes Up the Armstrong Auditorium on April 26 | Culture & Leisure

Edmond, Oklahoma – Recognized worldwide as an “orchestra of voices,” the all-male Chanticleer choir takes the stage at the Armstrong Auditorium on Tuesday, April 26 at 7:30 p.m.

“The Chanticleer sound is exceptional, and I remember it being particularly good acoustically here at Armstrong,” said Ryan Malone, Program Manager for the Armstrong Auditorium. “We are thrilled to have such power and purity of voice on our stage.”

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

After the longest performance hiatus in Chanticleer history, the ensemble embarked on their final concert tour, “Awakenings.” With a repertoire including music from William Byrd, Claudio Monteverdi and Augusta Read Thomas, as well as new commissions from Steven Sametz and Ayanna Woods, Chanticleer’s re-emergence is, say the band’s publicists, “filled with rousing backing vocals and a renewed sense of purpose”. .”

Founded in 1978, the GRAMMY® Award-winning Chanticleer has performed around the world. The ensemble is made up of twelve singers and has sold over a million albums and won numerous awards. Named after the “clean-crowded” rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, Chanticleer is known for his renditions of a wide variety of genres from Renaissance music to contemporary works.

Tickets for this concert start at $35 for an orchestra seat. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit the Armstrong Auditorium website or call the box office at (405) 285-1010. Additional information is available at:
