Robert, Acappella Music?

Robert,There are a lot of Acappella groups out there competing to win and it's become a major source of communication through music and choreography. I was curious if you would ever consider either solo with friends like Gerry Beckley etc or with Chicago recording a couple of Acappella songs in the future?Thanks.Robin

Nominate Chicago for a Kennedy Center Honor!

The Terry Kath Experience (film)

The film directed by Terry's daughter, Michelle Kath Sinclair, is premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 15th.  Robert and all the original members will be in it.   I'm sure we'll all get to see it when it makes it to wider distribution, disc or streaming.

The Story of Tabla

Has anyone ever wondered who she was?  I'm drawn into the story and lyrics every time I listen to this song. If Robert would ever like to tell it, that would be great.  It will always be an inspiring tribute either way.

Walter - 1969

I've spend my summer break from teaching learning to play clarinet.  I've never played a wind instrument before, but it's very rewarding learning something new at age 40.  When I was a little kid my dad handed me a record that introduced children to the instruments of the orchestra.  I was smitten by the woodwinds especially, and really loved the reedy tone of the oboe.  I never had the chance to learn to play a woodwind instrument as a child, preferring drums and guitar.  With a little…

"Elegy Suite is my favorite, a story without words.  I used Once Upon A Time it as an exercise on intervals in music theory class.  I thought it worked well as a listening exercise because it's slow and repetitive.. and of course beautiful! "
