Coming Out of the Dark - Chicago a cappella

Coming Out of the Dark

Program created and music direction by John William Trotter
As mother nature gives us an extra hour of sunlight in February, we’ll share the songs that brought us back to the light when the darkness of our stages was weighing us down. We’ll share a collection of songs sourced directly from our singers’ pandemic playlists, along with personal stories of how they provided inspiration, consolation, escape, and joy. And, we’ll premiere two new works from the winners of our HerVoice Women Composers Competition, a program launched in 2020 that gave us hope for a bright future.
