Chanticleer
Heart of a Soldier

The hearts of soldiers burst with every emotion. Expressed in music from the Renaissance to the present day, these sentiments ranging from extreme pain to extreme joy are universal.

Heart of a Soldier will feature early music of war and peace from Byrd, Tomkins, Janequin, and Dufay. Stirring martial music from Russia includes works by Glinka and traditional songs sung by ordinary soldiers. New works for Chanticleer by Mason Bates and John Musto are paired with celebrated choruses from Jennifer Higdon’s Cold Mountain and lighthearted music from the home front.

Called “the world’s reigning male chorus” by the New Yorker, the Grammy Award-winning ensemble Chanticleer is known around the world as an “orchestra of voices” for the seamless blend of its 12 male voices, ranging from soprano to bass. Named for the “clear-singing” rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, “Chanticleer fascinates and enthralls for much the same reason a fine chocolate or a Rolls Royce does: through luxurious perfection.” (Los Angeles Times)

The U-M Glee Club makes a special cameo appearance in this Veterans Day Weekend concert, which kicks off the Ambassadors of Song International Male Chorus Symposium on the University of Michigan campus.

UMS is proud to be a part of Veterans Week at the University of Michigan.
