The Silhouettes

Women's A Cappella, Loyola University Chicago

What is A Cappella?

Aca-awesome question. A Cappella music is singing without the accompaniment of instruments. Each member of our group produces sounds that mimic instrumental or vocal sounds.

When were The Silhouettes founded?

The Silhouettes was founded in the fall of 2006 by Leslie Schaefer and Dorothy Dolder. We remain Loyola University Chicago's only women's A Cappella group on campus and we only continue to grow in talent and popularity each year.

What kind of performances do you do?

The Silhouettes have performed at a wide range of gigs including open mic nights, public events in downtown Chicago, Christmas caroling, A Cappella competitions, and many more in addition to our final concerts at the end of each semester. And we're really fun at weddings. 

So, this is basically "Pitch Perfect?"

Yep, pretty much. 

Can I audition for The Silhouettes?

Absolutely! If you are a Loyola Chicago student who identifies as a woman and you are interested in auditioning, be sure to stop by our table at the Organization Fair held in Gentile Arena at the beginning of each semester. We will have information about auditions for you then.
