SONGS OF LOVE AND LIGHT will feature a diverse collection of choral music spanning from the late Romantic period through the 21st century. From the rich beautiful harmony of Brahms' O schöne Nacht to the stunning a cappella music of contemporary Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, the program will explore both sacred and secular texts.
The Chicago Artists Ensemble will perform a tender set of songs by famed modern composer Eric Whitacre. The Chorale will also present songs accompanied by the magnificent Lyon and Healy Pipe Organ at St. Vincent de Paul Parish. The program will culminate with Charles Stanford's Nunc dimittis, featuring Chicago's own Larry Adams as the bass soloist.

Chicago Artists Chorale (CAC) was established in 2014 in response to members of Chicago's rich theatre community looking for an outlet to express themselves through the art of choral music. Since its induction, the group has grown to over 60 singers and expanded to include a variety of artists including actors, directors, choral and theatre educators, stage managers, video game music composers, music directors, sign language interpreters, and more.
Under the direction of Artistic Director Tom Vendafreddo, CAC performs biannual concerts at venues such as the Chicago Temple, Athenaeum Theatre, and The Nettelhorst School. The group has also appeared on WGN Morning News, WGN Midday News, and on the radio with Dean Richards Sunday Morning. In 2015, CAC became a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose mission consists of expanding the artistic experiences of its singers and its audience members.
