Over one hundred concerts per year, twenty hours of rehearsal per week, thousands of hours driving, tens of thousands of airline miles, hundreds of hotel rooms and enough climates, time zones and germy handshakes to give anyone the plague—such is the life of a singer in the Grammy award winning male vocal ensemble, Chanticleer. Keeping the voice, mind, and body healthy, rested, and perpetually “warmed-up” is a full-time struggle, and each member develops his own unique way of coping with the stresses of being continually on the road. Former member and Music Director Emeritus Matthew Oltman will provide insights, tips, and a few amusing anecdotes culled from his 13 years with the ensemble.
