Holidays a cappella 2007
The Season of Light

December 2007

Warm your winter with music for Christmas and Chanukah, focusing on the image of light as a beacon of hope, from medieval music to “Silent Night” to spirituals and new compositions.  Highlights include world premieres of two new works: Stacy Garrop's "Lo Yisa Goy," and Rollo Dilworth's "Sistah Mary," as part of Chicago a cappella's 15th Anniversary Commissioning Series.
