Thank you to everyone who made our gala benefit event on May 20, Some Enchanted Evening, such a wonderful success. Our guests enjoyed beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein songs, along with hors d'oeuvres from Whole Foods, wines from House Red, desserts from Give Me Some Sugah, and a fabulous silent auction and raffle, all under the Tiffany dome of the Chicago Cultural Center. It was truly a grand night for singing!

At last fall's Baroque and Beatles concert, we welcomed Chicago's preeminent Beatles expert, Terri Hemmert of WXRT, as our special guest. After the Chicago and Oak Park performances, Terri joined Chicago a cappella artistic director Jonathan Miller for discussions and a question-and-answer session about the Beatles, the connections between pop and classical music, and the importance of music in all our lives.
