Since their inception in 2009, the choir has emerged as an energetic and accomplished vocal ensemble, receiving accolades for their performances.

Led by Eric A. Johnson, D.M.A, president and founding artistic director, the ensemble consists of accomplished performers and has toured nationally and internationally with composers from around the world. The ensemble has recorded four CDs with an emphasis on contemporary works and collaboration with commissioned composers.

The group also spearheads an educational outreach program through its "Masterworks" workshop project, which is aimed at Chicago area high school choral students to help them refine their skills while promoting the creation, performance and appreciation of choral music in young singers.
