Event Description

Chicago a cappella will bring a free public concert of “American Songbook Classics” to Cornell College at 7:30 p.m. Monday, April 17, in Kimmel Theatre.

Long recognized for vocal virtuosity and innovative programming, Chicago a cappella enjoys a reputation as a leader in the choral field.

An ensemble of professional singers founded in 1993,  Chicago a cappella  has produced more than 200 concerts on its Chicago-based series. On tour, the group has appeared in 13 American states and Mexico.  The ensemble has been heard frequently on WFMT radio and through broadcasts distributed by American Public Media, including the nationally-syndicated  Performance Today. The ensemble has produced nine CD recordings of music ranging from Renaissance masses to contemporary works.

Chicago a cappella is also active in educational and community engagement.  The ensemble produces an annual Youth Choral Festival for young singers from the Chicago area, and  ¡Cantaré!, a unique cross-cultural program designed to bring the talents of composers from Mexico directly into Chicago classrooms and the concert hall through residencies in schools and an annual free community concert.
