Chicago Chorale presents A Century of A Cappella Music
Unaccompanied choral music has particularly inspired composers and performers in the past century. Chorale, with its historic roots in the techniques and repertoire made famous by such conductors as Robert Shaw and Weston Noble, stands at the forefront of this particular genre in the Chicago area. Each year we introduce listeners to little known a cappella repertoire by such composers as Distler, Martin, Nystedt, Rachmaninoff, Rautavaara, Pärt, and Shchedrin, presented in the acoustics for which this music has been composed. This year, we present a concert of the most beloved and requested works in our repertoire, prepared with the care and discipline for which we are known, performed with warmth and passion. The choir returns to the chapel of the Monastery of the Holy Cross, in Chicago's Bridgeport neighborhood, for this concert. All six of Chorale's CDs were recorded at the Monastery because of the chapel's extraordinary, other-worldly acoustics, and because of the timeless, sacred quality of the space itself.
Seating is more limited at the Monastery than in our other venues. Only by ordering tickets
in advance can you be assured of hearing this unforgettable concert.
