While we are not able to host a live audience this year, we hope you will be able to join us virtually. This year's fall home concert will be presented as a live-streaming event via the University's website and Facebook Live.
The Kapelle is Concordia University Chicago’s premier choral ensemble, performing repertoire ranging from Renaissance to contemporary music. Known for delivering beautifully sung, thematic programs, the students spread the Gospel message to audiences throughout the U.S. and abroad. Since 2003, the Kapelle has traveled to Argentina, Canada, Chile, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Latvia, Poland, Russia and Scotland.
Beyond touring, the Kapelle actively performs in the Chicagoland area. They have collaborated with Chicago-area choirs and orchestras over the years, having performed with the Chicago Arts Orchestra, South Suburban Orchestra, and the Symphony of Oak Park-River Forest. The Kapelle recently
sang Cantata 149 at the Bach Cantata Vespers series at Grace Lutheran Church, River Forest, and will once again join forces with the Symphony of Oak Park-River Forest and Chicago-area choirs in the performance of the Berlioz Te Deum at Symphony Center in downtown Chicago on April 20, 2020.
The Kapelle has also received the honor of performing headline programs at conferences for the Illinois chapters of the American Choral Directors Association and National Association for Music Education, and the national convocation of the Lutheran Education Association. Committed to serving the Church, the Kapelle visits congregations and schools throughout the country by leading workshops, performing assemblies and serving in worship.
