An Octave Above

Mixed Vocal Jazz Octet

  • 2006 Chicago 3rd place

    Four years ago, An Octave Above quickly established themselves as one of the hottest a cappella vocal groups in Chicago. Last year they were named 1st runner up at the Harmony Sweepstakes A Cappella Festival Chicago Regional. They’ve been featured performers with the Elgin Symphony Orchestra for their annual “Holiday Spectacular” concert for 3 consecutive years. They’ve performed for Chorus America’s annual conference, opened for award winning jazz vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater at the Elmhurst Jazz Festival, sang the National Anthem for the Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field and the Chicago White Sox game at U.S. Cellular Field and at the United Center for the Chicago Bulls game. The Chicago Symphony Chorus claims four of the members and the St. Charles Singers claims two; they've earned degrees in music and vocal performance from Elmhurst College, Northwestern University, Northern Illinois University, Bradley University, and the State University of New York (SUNY). Inspired by The Real Group, The Swingle Singers, Manhattan Transfer and The New York Voices. An Octave Above is versatile, eclectic and always wonderful. Listen once and you’ll be transposed… An Octave Above!!

    Members: Jennifer Gingrich, Meredith Morris, Melinda Voss, Debra Wilder, Nick Falco, Andrew Dahan, Kris Monn,
