La Caccina is professional women’s vocal ensemble 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, expert compositions, 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. 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, Marie-Claire Saindon, and Melissa Dunphy, 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.
