Bridging the Gap"Bridging the Gap" takes you behind the scenes and explores musical—and non-musical—topics related to our music and our artists. Curated and hosted by Creative Consultant Kathryn Kamp, each episode will include musical performances from past Chicago a cappella concerts and recordings, as we create a bridge to the broader community, share some of our favorite songs, and chat with some of our favorite people.
