Event Description

“They are, to put it directly, one of the world’s best.” – San Francisco Chronicle



Pulitzer Prize winner John Harbison's first composition for Chanticleer, Psalm 116, forms the centerpiece of UPON THIS ROCK, a virtuosic program of sacred vocal music spanning over 550 years.

Music has comforted and confounded saints and sinners alike for as long as spirituality and music have gone together, whether in the form of transcendent prayers of thanksgiving and consolation, or psalms of happiness and paeans of praise.

UPON THIS ROCK features works by Victoria, Poulenc, Palestrina, di Lasso, Weelkes, Morley, and Traditional American spirituals and folk hymns, and centers on the world premiere of Psalm 116 by Pulitzer Prize winning composer John Harbison.


Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by The New Yorker magazine, the San Francisco based GRAMMY® award-winning ensemble Chanticleer celebrates its 40th season in 2017-18. Praised by the San Francisco Chronicle for their “tonal luxuriance and crisply etched clarity,” Chanticleer is known around the world as “an orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its twelve male voices ranging from soprano to bass and its original interpretations of vocal literature, from Renaissance to jazz and popular genres, as well as contemporary composition.
