The Best of Chicago a cappella
A 20th Anniversary Celebration

Fall 2013

Experience all the musical virtuosity, intimacy, and versatility of Chicago a cappella’s first two decades in one fabulous concert.  This showcase brings 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.  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.  Check out the audio and video samples below!
