Needless to say, we're going to Chicago a cappella's concert on Saturday, October 1, at 8 p.m. at Pilgrim Congregational Church, 460 Lake St. (800/746-4969). The theme of the concert is "human beings' obsession with food." Bingo! They promise us a "wry but heartfelt look," which implies a certain ironic distance from the subject that we would find refreshing, in contrast to the mindless lunging for donuts that we have been practicing of late. On somber reflection, the only musical composition that we can think of that might be included in their program, which they've titled The Musical Food Groups, is "Beans, beans, the musical fruit..." Do you suppose they'll include it, because it's so obvious? Or leave it out, for the same reason?
