San Francisco's own men's choir, famous world-wide, brings its annual holiday celebration blend to Memorial Church. Since its 1978 founding in San Francisco by Louis Botto, Chanticleer has toured the world, winning bravos from the capitals of Europe to the greenways of Central Park, where the group has sung alongside the New York Philharmonic. It wouldn't be December at Stanford without it.
The celebrated San Francisco male chorus brings its far-ranging holiday concert to sanctuaries around the Bay Area, singing Gregorian chants, Spanish villancicos and American hymns, carols in various languages, Renaissance music by Cristóbal de Morales and Franz Biebl’s famed 1959 Ave Maria.
