Guest Artists: Chanticleer performs My Secret Heart
May 6

Memorial Chapel, 3 pm

The University of Redlands School of Music is proud to present a concert featuring the multiple Grammy award winning ensemble Chanticleer. Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker magazine, Chanticleer is in its 39th season, performing over 100 concerts in the U.S. and around the world annually. Chanticleer is known 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.

The secret heart can lead us to strange and wondrous places. This program invokes images of love across time and space. Love: fond and foolish, ribald, romantic, bawdy or bashful. Love: hidden, forbidden, feverish and forever. The seductive, and frequently erotic, verses from the Biblical “Song of Songs” give way to French madrigals based on texts by the legendary Pierre de Ronsard. Stephen Foster and Eric Whitacre sing of love; so does Noël Coward. Russian soldiers far from home burn with desire as Rachmaninoff sings a wordless lullaby. Two special Chanticleer commissions are highlights of the program: a brand new work from the pen of Finnish composer Jaako Mantyjärvi, and five evocative and heart-wrenching poems from “Love Songs” of Augusta Read Thomas, featured in the Grammy-award winning CD “The Colors of Love.”

Be sure not to miss this extra special event at the University of Redlands!
