The sun, the moon, the stars, the planets and the universe beyond them: Composers have always been fascinated by their seductive power. Chanticleer’s newest explorations will be from Berkeley-based composer-DJ Mason Bates in a world premiere about transmissions from outer space and a special arrangement of the hit “Cells Planets” by Erica Lloyd of Little Grey Girlfriend. Fantastic early works by Monteverdi, Marenzio and Palestrina and romantic works by Schumann (“An die Sterne”) and Mahler (“Ich bin der Welt…”) will join the music of 20th-century composers Britten, Mechem, Hopkins (“Past Life Melodies”), Gershwin and others. Come with Chanticleer…out of this world!

Chanticleer — based in San Francisco — 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.
