Interested in a cappella music? Want to join a brotherhood of musically talented UChicago men? Make sure to audition for Chicago Men’s A Cappella, known around campus as CMAC. Auditions will be held on Thursday of O-Week (Sept. 24) from 12:00 PM- 2:00 PM, and on Tuesday of 1st Week (Sept. 29) from 5:00- 7:00 PM, both in Bond Chapel. Even if you are unable to audition at either of these times, we encourage you to set up an audition time individually.
To schedule an audition time or learn more about the group, please e-mail our group’s president, Woody Atwood, at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, or our group’s director, Bruce Tammen, at email@example.com.
CMAC rehearses twice each week (Tuesdays and Thursdays, 5:00 PM- 7:00 PM) and performs three concerts each year, one at the end of each academic quarter. This Autumn Quarter we will be performing Handel’s Messiah. In addition to our larger concerts, we sing numerous smaller gigs throughout the year, at venues and events ranging from a service at a monastery to a performance during Homecoming Weekend festivities.
All students at the University are welcome to audition. CMAC is a rewarding experience whether you are just starting your first year of undergrad or you are in your final year of your Ph.D!
Furthermore, students with all levels of experience are encouraged to audition. We are a diverse group, with member’s backgrounds ranging from all-state musician to a cappella novice.
Above all, the men of CMAC are Strong for Chicago, and we hope that you will be too once you audition!
