Tuesday, 16 July

The Stimmen (Voices) music festival has become the largest music event on the Upper Rhine, attracting an impressive array of international stars, soloists, and choirs, providing magical moments and musical experiences for young and old. From July 4 to August 4, the festival will pay homage to the power and beauty of the human voice at various special venues in Germany and Switzerland.
On this evening, the American vocal ensemble Chanticleer will perform at the Burghof in Lörrach. Chanticleer, named after the rooster “with the clear song” from Geoffrey Chaucer's “Canterbury Tales,” was founded in San Francisco in 1978 by the tenor and musicologist Louis Botto and quickly developed into one of the most productive ensembles in the world. Chanticleer are known worldwide for their homogeneous sound, diverse repertoire, and dazzling virtuosity and have been described by the New Yorker as “the leading male choir in the world.” Rooted in the Renaissance, Chanticleer's repertoire has expanded to include a wide range of classical, gospel, jazz, and popular music. The ensemble was awarded a Grammy for its recordings of Sir John Tavener's “Lamentations & Praises” and the ambitious collection of commissioned works entitled “Colors of Love.”
Tickets are € 37.
