March: National Youth Choral Festival - The Singing Life - Gala Concert

We did it! The concert was amazing - stereophonic energy going back and forth from the stage to the audience. We started with Jubilate Deo by Gabrieli and Ave Verum Corpus by Byrd. Then the honor choir sang Wilbye's Sweet Honey Sucking Bees.


  1. The concert on March 29 was just splendid! The beautiful voices and disciplined professionalism of the well-dressed young people was beyond my expectations. The very first beautiful notes of the "Jubilate" gave me a lump in my throat and the last song,
    Biebl's "Ave Maria," had tears coming from my heart. Chanticleer was excellent. What a treat, and thank you all.

  2. Thank you Chanticleer for the amazing experience you provided for my choir, Las Voces Celestiales from Paso Robles, Ca. It was an inspiring 4 days and one that we will never forget. Matt you did a fantastic job rehearsing the mass choir! Your energy and passion is contaigious. Ben,thank you for the vision and organzization of this enormous musical undertaking. You out did yourself! We miss you all already. My students said they wished we could have stayed another week. Thank you Chanticleer for having hearts for the youth of today and providing us with such an incredible experience. We love you! Mary Schmutz
