Quotes & Highlights

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

Description

Praised by The New York Times for its “precise, pure, and deeply felt singing,” the Grammy-winning ensemble, Chanticleer, celebrates its 28th season with a one-night-only performance at the Barclay.  No subject has inspired poets and composers more than the beauty and power of nature.  With EarthSongs, acclaimed 12-man ensemble Chanticleer pairs poets’ words with music to celebrate the grace of earth’s creatures, the voices of the seasons and the very rhythms of our planet. From delicate madrigals, to contemporary settings to evocations of native cultures, EarthSongs will resonate with listeners long after the final note has been sung.
