The Chanteclairs, under the direction of Lorraine Milovac, is an auditioned ensemble selected from within the Pantheon Choir. In addition to the Madrigal Dinner, the Chanteclairs participate in community events including Veterans Day, Upper St. Clair Hall of Fame Induction, holiday performances, competitions, invitationals as well as high school choral concerts throughout the school year.
