The Grammy Award-winning vocal ensemble Chanticleer presents its oldest and best-loved tradition with 12 performances of A Chanticleer Christmas in the Bay Area between December 10th and 23rd. The program, both peaceful and joyous, tells the Christmas story in music from Gregorian Chant to our day, featuring many familiar and beloved songs. A Chanticleer Christmas takes place in beautifully decorated missions, churches and cathedrals around the Bay Area, offering transcendent moments more needed now than ever.
In a Bay Area tradition spanning nearly 40 years, A Chanticleer Christmas tells the story of the nativity in music written from the 13th to 21st centuries. This year’s program features music by Poulenc, Morales, Victoria, and Sweelinck; traditional English, Welsh and Spanish Carols and the introduction of a new Christmas spiritual medley arranged for Chanticleer by Rosephanye Powell.
