Chanticleer, the internationally renowned 12-man a cappella singing ensemble, will return home to Northern California in December with its critically acclaimed holiday concert, A Chanticleer Christmas. Hailed by The New Yorker as "the world's reigning male chorus", Chanticleer will present eleven holiday performances Dec 12 - 22 in Oakland, San Francisco, Petaluma, Berkeley, Davis, Carmel and Santa Clara.

A Chanticleer Christmas has become a holiday classic throughout the Bay Area and across the country. It has been featured in four consecutive annual appearances by Chanticleer on NBC TV's Today show, as well as on a DVD recorded in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art that aired widely on public television. A writer for the New Yorker summed it up succinctly: "No one does a better choral Christmas than the virtuoso male voices of Chanticleer."

The program celebrates the mystery and wonder of the season, and enriches the spirit at this special time of year with its beautiful blend of traditional carols from around the world, medieval and Renaissance sacred works and lively spirituals. Featured on this year's program are selections from several of Chanticleer's best-selling albums of holiday favorites, as well as works not previously recorded.
