official opinions: stitely staff sings (and plays guitar)

Unsurprisingly, most of the Stitely staffers are musicians who sing & play on their off hours. This week Chicago is lucky enough to be graced with two shows featuring the talents of Stitely employees and interns.

If you’re free tonight, come check our Planning & Sound Intern, Morgan Haner, and his band Cavepainters, at Uncommon Ground on Devon at 9:30 p.m. Margaret Potts of DePaul University Honors says Morgan Haner Music “…is bright, experimental, and witty, with lyrics pertaining to current social justice issues such as the ongoing war in Iraq and different public policies around the nation. His style resembles his personal inspirations: Bob Dylan and Neil Young. Listening to Haner, I had the privilege to witness what may be the first unveiling of a strong musical voice.”

Cover is only $5 but Uncommon Ground fills up fast! Call 773-465-9801 to reserve your spot. Morgan’s brand new solo album, “War and Cocaine,” is available for download or you can buy it at the show tonight.

For music of a different flavor, try 60 Degrees North, the Wicker Park Choral Singers concert this Saturday, June 23 at 8:00 p.m. at St. Vincent DePaul Church (1010 W. Webster Ave, Chicago, IL). Rachel has been singing with this community ensemble since its inception in 2008 and says this concert’s program is its most ambitious yet. 60 Degrees North features the music from countries located on or near the titular latitudinal line  including: Russia, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, and Canada.

“I was drawn to the music of these northern countries because each has a strong and enviable choral tradition,” says WPCS Artistic Director Mark Tomasino. “That tradition is rooted in a great emphasis on social identification through singing which has resulted in tremendous musical participation and output for countries of such modest populations.”

The performance is free and open to the public. The concert program runs about 90 minutes and will be followed by a reception where attendees are invited to enjoy thematically appropriate food provided by Stone Root Catering.
