Berkeley Public Library is proud to welcome back Chanticleer’s Louis A. Botto Youth Choir.  Singers aged 14-20 will present a free concert on Saturday, April 20 at 2:00 P.M. at the Central Library, 2090 Kittredge (at Shattuck), on the fifth floor in the Art & Music department. The Grammy-winning San Francisco-based group Chanticleer provides high-level, small ensemble training for the Bay Area’s top young singers and offers community service through free performances. The youth outreach choir is named for Chanticleer’s founder, Louis A. Botto.  In "Ren and Blue: a program of Renaissance and Jazz", you’ll hear a juxtaposition of early Renaissance masters (Leonel Power, Johannes Ockeghem, John Dowland, and Thomas Morley) with some Jazz hits (When I Fall in Love, Blue Skies, Frankie and Johnny, and Chili con Carne). This free program is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.  For further information, call 510-981-6139.  For accessibility information, call 510-981-6107 TTY, 510-548-1240,
