Conducted by Christopher Bell, Chicago’s Grant Park Chorus, “as fine a symphony chorus as any to be found anywhere in the nation” (Chicago Tribune), makes its a cappella CD debut with an all-American program of eight imaginative, moving, and sometimes whimsical works written between 1975 and 2005, including four world-premiere recordings.
Bell has fans on both sides of the Atlantic. The Ulster-born chorus master also commands the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, Royal Scottish National Orchestra Junior Chorus, and Belfast Philharmonic Choir.
The chorus made its commercial recording debut performing with the Grant Park Orchestra on the 2011 Cedille Records release The Pulitzer Project, which attracted international attention (Cedille Records CDR90000125). Chicago’s New City said the CD “spectacularly showcased” the chorus’s “remarkable transparency and flexibility.”
