The concert features a mix of Jewish music from a variety of historical moments, from European courts to the Broadway stage, to opera and oratorio, to American Songbook standards. The music come from such historically acclaimed composers as Felix MendelssohnLeonard Bernstein, and Irving Berlin, alongside some of Chicago’s own greats.

Chicago a cappella presents the U.S. premiere of the mixed choir version of “Give Me Hunger” by Stacy Garrop, University of Chicago alumna and former professor at Roosevelt University and two pieces by Max Janowski, the late, internationally recognized music director of KAM Isaiah Israel in Hyde Park. 

Join us as we discover the dynamic influences of religion and society on composers whose music does—and doesn’t—sound Jewish. For more information, click here to visit our website.
