"Sometimes they think it means collegiate a cappella, where you dance and clap your hands. And actually this group is pretty good at singing pop tunes ... but that's a relatively small part of what we do" - John William Trotter, principal music director, on the misconceptions about what Chicago a cappella is.

Chicago a cappella's new program, LOVE STORIES, adds a little theatrical staging to the program.  A love story between a husband and wife adds a framework for the group's song performances.
