The A Cappella American Songbook - Chicago a cappella

The A Cappella American Songbook

Program created by Jonathan Miller / Music Direction by John William Trotter

Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, and others created a tradition of American popular song that remains one of our most treasured musical joys.  Now hear these great melodies in new a cappella adaptations, as we sing standards like “Night and Day,” “Blue Skies,” “I Got Rhythm,” and songs by Rodgers and Hammerstein, Stephen Sondheim, and many more.  Our guest music director is John William Trotter, conductor of the Wheaton College Concert Choir and former Associate Conductor of the Vancouver Chamber Choir, Canada’s internationally-acclaimed professional vocal ensemble.
