The moon – the symbol in song, story, poetry and legend of powerful and mysterious female energy which determines and regulates so much of life on our planet.

Magnificent early statements by Monteverdi, di Lasso, Desprez and Parsons give way to the more romantic yearnings of Elgar and Mahler.  Equally fascinated are contemporary composers such as Mäntyjärvi, Paulus, Muhly and Bates, whose compositions for Chanticleer are audience favorites.  Popular music is no stranger to the subject.

Over the Moon will include treatments of jazz standards by Mancini and Bart Howard, and more recent songs by Elbow and others. “Three Moon Songs” newly written for Chanticleer by internationally acclaimed composer Nico Muhly will be featured

Chanticleer Concert 2015

This second annual concert performance by Chanticleer was a smashing success.  We are so pleased by the tremendous reception this concert received.  Many thanks to those who worked to make the concert a great success.

As we honor the quincentenary of the birth of St. Philip Neri, Founder of the Congregation of the Oratory we hope that those who came form beyond our regular community join us again for music, prayer and service rooted in the joy of the Holy Spirit.

Stay tuned for the next concert series!
