As part of its mission, Friends of Music sponsors concerts by nationally and internationally renowned ensembles.
This season we are proud to present Chanticleer on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 at 7:00 pm in our Sanctuary. Chanticleer was founded by Louis Botto in 1978 in San Francisco. They celebrate the ensemble’s 40th Anniversary this year with a program entitled “Then and There, Here and Now”. The multiple Grammy Award-winning all-male vocal ensemble is comprised of 12 singers hailing from across the U.S. William Fred Scott joined the ensemble as music director in August 2015. Chanticleer’s repertoire spans ten centuries from Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony and Romantic art song to contemporary music, jazz, spirituals and world music. They are a multiple Grammy winning ensemble and recognized as “The world’s reigning male chorus.” – The New Yorker. And according to The Los Angeles Times, “Chanticleer fascinates and enthralls for much the same reason a fine chocolate or a Rolls Royce does: through luxurious perfection.” – Los Angeles Times. Tickets are $30/General Admission, $18/Students available at www.prumc.org/events.
Music plays a central role in the life of the Peachtree Road UMC community. The Church is able to continue and expand this tradition of musical excellence through the generosity and faithful support of the Friends of Music. Individual membership is open to all by donation. Every gift at every level is appreciated. Donors receive free or discounted admission to most concerts and will be recognized in our music programs and throughout the season.
