Chanticleer Struts into the Outer Banks
By Kip Tabb –
If you’re looking for something to do Saturday night, check out the Outer Banks Forum for the Lively Arts program, Chanticleer at the First Flight High School auditorium.
Here’s Chanticleer’s description of the concert:
The complex and emotionally charged dialogue between the sexes is the subject of She Said/He Said, our first concert of the season. Godliness bestowed upon women (by men) is extolled in works by Andrea Gabrieli and Eric Whitacre. The bawdiest of Renaissance Madrigals, standards by Cole Porter and Ravel’s dramatic Trois chansons will revisit this this age-old topic. She Said/He Said features the wide-ranging voices of Hildegard von Bingen, Stacy Garrop, Joni Mitchell and more.
But that only touches on who this group is and what they’re all about.
Featuring 12 male vocalists from across the country, this is an a cappella group like none you have ever heard—precise in their vocalizations, impeccable harmonies and innovative arrangements.
The most exciting part of their visit to the Outer Banks, though, may be the workshop with the First Flight High School Advanced Choir on Friday afternoon and the choir’s inclusion in Saturday’s program.
Chanticleer begins at 7:30 in the First Flight High School Auditorium in Kill Devil Hills. Tickets are still available for the event. chanticleer.orgFor more information go to http://www.outerbanksforum.org. or phone Kim Prince at (757) 613-6426.
