The world-renowned choral ensemble Chanticleer is coming to Western Kentucky University Thursday evening as part of the school's Cultural Enhancement Series. The performance is at 7:30pm C.T. at Van Meter Auditorium, and is free and open to the public.

The group will perform a program called The Siren's Call. This program celebrates the sea with music from New Zealand, Hawaii and China complemented by Chanticleer's signature treatments of Gregorian Chant and Renaissance music.

WKU Public Radio's Lee Stott spoke with Jace Wittig, Chanticleer's Music Director, about the group and its April 11 performance in Bowling Green.

Lee served as WKU Public Radio's Music Director for nearly 30 years, retiring in June 2013. He produced classical music programs in other markets (including Detroit and Salt Lake City) before joining us. For many years he hosted Music In The Morning and Afternoon Concert, and continues to program and host Evening With The Pops. He also produces arts features that air during Morning Edition, and has produced numerous broadcast concerts, including performances by the Owensboro Symphony.
