Program: “Music of a Silent World”
Chanticleer sings the songs of the natural world and gives a voice to the otherwise voiceless rocks, stones, trees, and rivers that share our planet with us. Repertoire includes music by Byrd, Isaac, Schumann, and more, plus new arrangements by Tom Petty, Pete Seeger, and Majel Connery and a new commission from Chanticleer’s composer-in-residence, Ayanna Woods.
