Contemplation of the heavens—a sense of wonderment shared by human beings through the ages, across the seas and among countless cultures—has long been the impetus for goosebump-inducing music for the human voice. Come along on a celestial journey with Chorus Director Christopher Bell for the ethereal sounds of Whitacre, Lauridson, Gjeilo and more. An a cappella concert presenting some of the most sublime choral works of the past 100 years, this program commemorates the 60th anniversary of the founding of the renowned Grant Park Chorus.
