Chicago Men’s a Cappella  will finish the year this June with a beloved tradition, its Quod Erat Demonstrandum (QED) performance. This Latin initialism, meaning “which had to be proven,” is traditionally written at the end of a proof or argument when what was specified in the enunciation has been exactly restated as the conclusion. This concert will feature both CMAC classics as well as popular renditions of “Yesterday,” “The Lion Sleeps Tonight,” “Hallelujah,” and “Amazing Grace.” Soloists include Woody Atwood, Will Myers, Henry Stone, and Gabriel Johnson, among others. Come and join CMAC as the group seeks to end the year in style and indeed show that it is Strong for Chicago!

General admission tickets cost $10. Students with a valid UCID can purchase tickets for $4 in advance and $5 at the door.
