Chanticleer, Youth, and the Choral Art
Founded in 1978, Chanticleer is a GRAMMY® Award-winning all-male vocal ensemble based in San Francisco. Educating young singers has always been an important part of the group’s mission. In its early history, the group would provide master classes and workshops by request before a more dedicated education program emerged under the leadership of a new president and general director in 1999.

A nationwide choral festival followed, which spawned a select group of local high school singers that became known as the LAB Choir and met regularly.
