Chanticleer In Sonoma

Chanticleer in Sonoma Choral Workshop

June 19-23, 2019

Join Chanticleer at Sonoma State University for an intensive five-day program of coaching, classes, and rehearsals designed to make you the best choral singer that you can be. In a beautiful wine country setting just one hour from San Francisco, you’ll receive in-depth instruction and valuable performance tips from America’s premier classical vocal ensemble.  Chanticleer’s twelve singers participate in chamber ensemble coaching sessions and demonstrations of rehearsal techniques, as well as informal interactions with workshop participants throughout the workshop. And they sing with the tutti ensemble!

The workshop is designed for experienced chamber chorus or other choral singers at the university-level and beyond. Maximum enrollment is 64 singers. Male and female singers with good sight-singing ability are encouraged to apply. Admission is determined by specific criteria, including vocal characteristics and background, recent choral experience, and a reference statement.

Don’t miss this exceptional opportunity to learn first-hand from the professionals of Chanticleer, all in the comfort of the first-class facilities at Sonoma State University in the heart of the Sonoma wine country.

"If it is the love of singing that brings you joy, then this is the workshop for you! 
Come spend five days of music-making in California's beautiful wine country."
