More about Chanticleer Singers in 2024

The Chanticleer Singers is a chamber choir based in Johannesburg. The choir was originally established by the well-known Maestro, Richard Cock. Since its inception, the choir has been singing a variety of challenging works across all genres of choral music. In a typical year, the Chanticleer Singers will perform around 5 or 6 programs of music, usually in Johannesburg, but also in other cities in South Africa and abroad, when the opportunity presents itself. In 2023, Richard retired, but the choir decided to continue its long-established tradition of performing unique and challenging musical programs.

The choir is currently conducted by two of the choir members, namely Louise Frahm-Arp, and Esté Meerkotter. Throughout the concert, the two take turns singing and conducting. Being active choir members, as well as conductors, they know the demands placed on the singers well. Both are established musicians themselves, and Esté is also known as a composer, with some of her compositions performed by Chanticleer under Richard Cock in the past.

The artistic direction of the choir, as well as the operational aspects of arranging and marketing concerts, are handled by a committee consisting of members of the choir.
