Event Details

It's a bird!  It's a plane!  It's...a CABARET! Da-da-da-daaaaaaaaah!
 
As a kid, you might have fantasized about saving the world in your superhero cape, with your superhuman strength, laser-beam eyes, and Spidey senses.

Or maybe, you spent hours in a dark basement, assembling a team of mages to plot the downfall of an evil sorcerer.  

Or perhaps as an adult, your mother still smirks as she washes your Return of the Jedi bedsheets.  

Welcome, friends. You are safe here.

Just in time for Comic Con Chicago 2014, VOX 3 Collective presents "Spandex and Bedsheets" just for you, our people.  In this crazy cabaret, members of VOX 3 blend scheming villains of opera with the arch nemeses of comic books, crash caped heroes into pop songs, and naturally stop runaway trains with their bare vocal cords.  In rapid-fire combinations of wildly different music styles: pop, jazz, musical theater, and classical, we sing songs about overcoming great obstacles, finding our own superpowers, and harnessing the general awesomeness within. Capes and masks optional.

VOX 3 Collective, Inc. NFP

VOX 3 Collective educates both performers and audiences through varied performances of vocal music. Formed in 2007, the group quickly instituted one of Chicago’s only regular art song recital series. Its members are graduates of some of the country’s finest conservatory programs, and have appeared with major opera companies and orchestras throughout the world. Pairing standard and obscure repertoire—whether Renaissance motet, Baroque opera, Romantic lieder, or contemporary art song—VOX 3 concerts and recitals feature thoughtful programming and provide intimate interaction between singer, accompanist, and audience. Featured on WLUW radio, WOCH television, and recommended by critics and publications throughout Chicago, VOX 3 concerts are entertaining and educational.  Beyond musical performance, VOX 3 builds bridges between branches of art, culture, and history, with its educational efforts through original essays, lectures, and other events.
