The concert at 4 p.m. will be broadcast live on Facebook and SLSQ.auditoriumseries.org.
  • Wednesday April 14th – Chanticleer: This renowned 12-piece a cappella male choir returns to Moscow with its program “Love, Always” and will perform a range of music from Morley and Palestrina to Whitney Houston, united by a common theme.

ACMS, a program of the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, will decide whether the Chanticleer concert will take place in person about two months before the event. Check auditiumseries.org, Facebook, and Instagram for updates.
