Chicago's acclaimed a cappella chamber choir Acappellago gooses up their traditional Christmas concert with exciting Windy City and world-premiere works, as well as fresh settings of traditional favorites. Already known for their innovative performances, which pull from classical, jazz, pop and gospel music, Escape to ... A New Beginning is set to feature the debut of Christmastide, a piece written especially for the ensemble by Australian composer Matthew Orlovich. Music Director Dennis R. Smith also leads the vocals-only group in two all-new carols from California composer Dale Trumbore and much more, at Congregational Church of Batavia.
Running time is one hour and 40 minutes, including intermission.
This performance is not recommended for children under age 6.
