Chanson male a cappella ensemble press reviews
"Simply splendid...The group's young men have been singing together for four years and have achieved a vocal blend and a stylish finesse that far surpass many groups that have been in the business longer....close harmonies, excellent diction
and fine attention to style that characterized the entire performance. It was a moment to cherish."
(The Courier-Journal, Louisville)
"Chanson's impeccable blend and sumptuous phrasing earns these dynamic young vocalists a place in the upper echelon of today's male ensembles."
(Robert Sieving, president, American Choral Directors Association of Minnesota)
"One of the best groups I have ever heard. Their diction is superb with the uniform vowel sounds and the crisp consonants which are the trademark of any really good group. And, their dynamics are fantastic. The repertoire of Chanson covers every style and period of music. They sing all equally well."
(Donald W. Crouch, Associated Male Choruses of America)
"Chanson brings together the vocal talents of gifted young men dedicated to the choral art, who sing with elegant ensemble, sincere expression, and sensitive musicianship." (René Clausen, director, The Concordia Choir)
"The Chanson concert was very well presenter and very well received. The ensemble performed with authority and precision in every musical style, with paradigmatic balance and blend, and with much personality projected to the appreciative listeners." (Richard Sjoerdsma, Music Department, Carthage College, Kenosha WI, presenter)
"Outstanding. Our audience enjoyed the program immensely. Absolutely accurate intonation, rhythmic precision, refined vocal control, and appropriate style for each selection." (Thomas Goetz, Louisville KY, presenter)
"Bravo! Chanson surpassed our expectations. The demo CD doesn't do them justice....a terrific evening." (Karen Tindall, Fort Walton Beach FL, presenter)
