Event Details

Chorus America and the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall are pleased to present a Community Sing with Chanticleer. This is a free community event in which Chanticleer will perform and also invite and teach the audience to sing with them to create shimmering harmonies, experience the true essence of the ensemble. This 75-minute event will be an interactive experience like no other. Audience members do not need to have any previous singing experience--all levels of experience are welcome. (Appropriate for families with older children, age 11 and up.) You'll be amazed at the music you'll create!

Note: The Community Sing will be followed by a 75-minute workshop, “Adapting the Model for Your Community.” Arts professionals and others who are interested are invited to join in this session on how to replicate the Community Sing model for your community.  

 

The Community Sing and Adapting the Model  for Your Community workshop are supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation. The Adapting the Model for Your Community workshop to promote community participation in the arts is supported, in part, by The Wallace Foundation, The San Francisco Foundation, and Grants for the Arts/San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund.

 Presenting Organizations

Carnegie Hall Weill Music Institute Carnegie Hall believes that music should be an essential part of life for everyone and puts that belief into practice through the Weill Music Institute (WMI). WMI serves some 170,000 people annually with programs and partnerships that allow people of all ages and backgrounds to explore their potential as performers and audience members. The Community Sing programs have been presented with great success throughout throughout the New York City area. Participating artists have included Take 6, Soweto Gospel Choir, the Fisk Jubilee Singers.

Chanticleer Called “the world’s reigning male chorus,” by the New Yorker magazine, and named Ensemble of the Year by Musical America in 2008, Chanticleer will perform more than 100 concerts in 2010-11, the GRAMMY Award-winning ensemble’s 33rd Season. Founded in 1978, 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. It was named for the “clear-singing” rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales.
