Full Spectrum A Cappella
It's our 25th year! Formed in 1993 (and known then as the OK Chorale), the group that became The Chromatics has morphed from a 12-member doo-wop and jazz group to the pop & originals group we are today. This video is a look back through our history in music and in photos. Enjoy!

The Chromatics are a high-energy vocal band on a mission to delight audiences with a full spectrum of songs about science, technology, life, and their intersections. They have taken their astronomically-correct a cappella songs, a project called AstroCappella, from coast to coast, and their CD has flown in space (for realz!). Back down on earth they have captivated young and old alike at the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage, the National Air & Space Museum, the Mid-Atlantic Harmony Sweepstakes, and numerous science fiction conventions, First Nights, festivals, concert series, and private parties. Their CDs have been nominated for multiple awards. After more than 20 years together they are a mainstay of the local music scene and still bring a youthful exuberance to their fun-filled, colorful, and scientifically accurate performances.
