Program creation and Music Direction by Jonathan Miller
Experience all the musical virtuosity, intimacy, and versatility of Chicago a cappella‘s first two decades in one fabulous concert. This showcase bring you spirituals and folk songs, sacred works and pop tunes. We’ll look to the future with a new commission from Paul Crabtree, the innovative composer whose music we’ve sung for over 10 years. His piece The Windhover reflects what he calls “the thrillingly successful flight of Chicago a cappella.” With poignant music by Chicagoan Stacy Garrop, Rufus Wainwright’s “Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk,” and a rocking chorus from Spring Awakening, we will launch our third decade with a bang. Hang on for a thrilling flight.
