Austin Peay's Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts presents the Grammy award-winning ensemble Chanticleer as part of the 2003-04 APSU/Clarksville Community Concert Artist Series.

The performance will begin at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Sept. 30, in the concert theater of the music/mass communication building.

The group also will appear in a special master class with the APSU Chamber Singers.

Named for the clear-singing rooster in Geoffrey Chaucer's “Canterbury Tales,” Chanticleer has earned international renown as “an orchestra of voices.” The 12 male voices, ranging from countertenor to bass, perform pieces from Renaissance to jazz and from gospel to venturesome new music.

The New York Times praises the vocal ensemble for its “precise, pure and deeply felt singing.”

Chanticleer's 2003-04 schedule includes concerts across the United States, tours of Asia and Europe and the release of its 27th CD.

Concert admission is $25 for adults and $12 for students. Series memberships are also available at family, adult and student rates.
