As its name suggests, this nine-member professional ensemble presents vocal concerts unadorned by instrumentation. Much of what makes Chicago a cappella (founded in 1993) so appealing is that programmatically, the group is no respecter of genres. Concerts consistently showcase Baroque and classical songs alongside 20th century creations both serious and popular. Armed with focused and insightfully crafted programs with names like “Romanticism and Rock & Roll” and “The Birds and the Bees,” founding Artistic Director Jonathan Miller and company perform fun, engaging concerts for audiences in Chicago and Beyond.
