Chanticleer LIVE on Tuesday

Chanticleer4

Tuesday at 2:00 pm


They’ve become as much of a holiday tradition at WFMT as they have at “Fourth Pres.” Tuesday afternoon, WFMT presents an Impromptu with the male a cappella ensemble Chanticleer.

When the San Francisco-based group files into the Fay and Daniel Levin Performance Studio, there are always lots of friendly hugs and introductions, but they’re quick to get down to business. One of the singers with perfect pitch gives them pitch and they start singing. During the sound check, assistant artistic director Kory Reid will duck in and out of the performance studio, listening from a few feet away or standing behind engineer Eric Arunas in the control room. He makes suggestions to the performers, corrects a diction or pitch issue, but the rest is up to the twelve singers. Through eye contact, nodding, or raising the shoulders as they breathe, these virtuoso vocalists gel into one of the most celebrated ensembles in the business.

Kerry Frumkin hosts Tuesday’s Impromptu of music and conversation starting at 2:00 pm. More on Chanticleer at WFMT.
