Join us as we finish our triumphant 10th season by singing some of the most iconic American protest music of the modern era. From Billie Holiday’s haunting “Strange Fruit” to Bob Dylan’s contemplative “Blowin’ in the Wind” to Lady Gaga’s loud-and-proud “Born this Way,” this program tells the story of the American dream in the way only music can.

La Caccina is professional women’s vocal ensemble and non-profit arts organization based in Chicago, founded in 2011 by three friends who shared a passion for choral music. La Caccina finds its namesake in Francesca Caccini, a prolific Baroque composer known for her virtuosic musicality and beautiful singing voice. Following in Caccini’s footsteps, the women of La Caccina bring a wide range of expertise to the ensemble, enabling them to easily adapt to a wide range of musical styles – from Renaissance madrigals to South African folk songs, and from contemporary pop songs to classical masterworks such as Vivaldi’s Gloria in D and Britten’s Ceremony of Carols. Over the past seven seasons, La Caccina has collaborated with ensembles including Pavo String Quartet, the DuPage Symphony Orchestra, and bluegrass trio Glass Mountain, and has commissioned and premiered works by Katherine Pukinskis, Augusta Read Thomas, Matthew Harris, Ed Frazier Davis, and Eric Malmquist, among others. No matter the music, La Caccina’s expressive, emotional singing highlights the versatility of the treble voice and brings musical excellence, integrity, and honesty to every performance.

UNCOMMON GROUND HAS HAD A FOCUS ON MUSIC AND LIVE ART EVENTS SINCE IT FIRST OPENED AS A LITTLE COFFEE HOUSE IN 1991. OUR PERFORMANCE PROGRAM INCLUDES LIVE SHOWS EVERY WEEK AT BOTH LOCATIONS! THE GOAL FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, WAS TO BE GROUND ZERO FOR EMERGING LOCAL & NATIONAL TOURING ARTISTS EACH NIGHT. OWNER MICHAEL CAMERON BOOKED ALL OF THE ENTERTAINMENT FROM 1991 UNTIL 2007 & STILL OVERSEES THE MUSIC PROGRAM WITH OUR FULL TIME MUSIC DIRECTOR, DANIEL WHITE. 

WE HOST ONE OF THE BEST OPEN MICS IN THE COUNTRY EVERY SUNDAY AT OUR LAKEVIEW LOCATION WHICH ARE SPONSORED BY SHURE & GREENSTAR ORGANIC BREWERY. MANY OF OUR TALENTED NIGHTLY PERFORMERS HAVE GONE ON TO CRITICAL ACCLAIM. WITH UNCOMMON GROUND'S INTERNATIONAL REPUTATION, YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU MIGHT CATCH IN OUR INTIMATE ACOUSTIC LISTENING ROOMS.
