Special Announcement: The CBA
Chorus is regretfully announcing that our Chorus Director of the last
ten years, Rebecca Patterson (“Becky”), is retiring at the
end of the 2015-2016 season. We are honoring Becky for her ten
years of service at the Barristers’ Big Band Benefit Ball on April
15, 2016 at the Standard Club (www.chicagobar.org/barristerball).
If you have ever sung with the CBA Chorus, please come to the Ball and
help us say goodbye to Becky. We know that the “Show Must Go
On,” so we are seeking a new choral conductor to work with Maestro
David Katz, CBA Orchestra Conductor, and plan to have the final three
candidates working with us for our concerts for the 2016-2017
season. For more information on the conductor search process,
please contact Rebecca
