SPECIAL EVENT: HANUKKAH A CAPPELLA
ONE NIGHT ONLY! Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023 at 7:30 PM, West Suburban Temple Har Zion (River Forest)
Back by popular demand and in celebration of our new recording of Hanukkah music on Cedille Records, this special event will reprise our “Hanukkah a cappella” program from December 2022, digging deeper than the “Dreidel Song” to unveil the richer meaning of the festival.

Celebrate the holiday season with songs you know and love (Deck the Hall! Silent Night! Joy to the World!) performed in exquisite and unique arrangements that you won’t hear anywhere else. You’ll experience this beloved music in a completely new way and even enjoy some sing-along (or hum-along) favorites!
February 17-25, 2024: Chicago, Evanston, River Forest and Wheaton
Inspired by a sabbatical at Cambridge University in 2020, Artistic Director John William Trotter has created a program of rich, resonant English choral masterworks and new works by our 2023 HerVoice Composer Competition winners, performed in resonant cathedral-like spaces where voice and space work together in unique and harmonious synergy.
