Who are we?

Stare at the Sun is a new professional chamber choir dedicated to commissioning and performing new work by Chicago-based composers to engage artists and the general public with issues of social responsibility and the complexities of the 21st century.

We are a group of young professional singers based in Chicago with an interest in curating music by living composers, and commissioning new works from artists based right here in our city. The group is comprised of singers active in Chicago's professional music scene who believe that, in addition to the incredible musical organizations present throughout our city, Chicago deserves its own mixed-voice choir whose sole mission is to commission new choral work: an outlet for young local composers to have new work performed, and for  virtuosic singers to perform it.
