460 Lake St., Oak Park, IL
Pilgrim Congregational Church
Chicago a cappella
Music direction by John William Trotter
Charming and witty classics by Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, and others in new a cappella adaptations.
Gershwin, Porter, Berlin, and others created a tradition of American popular song that remains one of our most treasured musical joys. From “Puttin’ on the Ritz” and “Night and Day” to “Stormy Weather” and “Summertime,” the Great American Songbook has been adapted for a cappella voices by a host of brilliant arrangers, whose delightful works will charm your ears and gladden your heart. Directing this program will be the remarkable young musician John William Trotter, associate conductor of the Vancouver Chamber Choir, Canada’s internationally-acclaimed professional vocal ensemble.
