Conductor and Music Director Bruce Tammen returns with the Chicago Chorale to perform live acapella choral music from the WFMT studios.

“Tammen has built his Chorale into an impressive instrument, so much so that it was often easy to forget that it comprises volunteer, ‘amateur’ vocalists.” John Von Rhein, Chicago Tribune

Chicago Chorale is a professional-level ensemble of singers who cultivate their craft out of genuine love and dedication, giving freely of their time and talent. Chicago Chorale enriches the lives of those in its community by broadening awareness of and deepening emotional connection to great choral music.
