    "Yuletide Tantrum"
    Performing a mixture of traditional holiday tunes and neo-classics, tossed together with offbeat originals about life in our modern high-tech world, all done in their own indescribable style, the Chromatics ensure that the playfulness of the season shines through.... All in all, just like a holiday cookie platter - a little bit of something for everyone. And speaking of cookies, be sure to stay after the show for some festive treats!

2015

  • Jan 9 - Jammin Java with the Tone Rangers and Venus d Minor - Vienna, VA
    Join The Tone Rangers, The Chromatics, and Venus d Minor for a night of a cappella humor and zaniness! We haven't calculated, but these groups must combine to well over 50 years of a cappella performing and all are known for humorous original songs. Come out for a night of laughter!
  • Feb 14 - Farpoint Science Fiction Convention - Baltimore, MD
    We'll be performing at the Masquerade half-time show and perhaps even do a preview of our INTERSECTIONS performance (see below).
  • Feb 21 (4:30pm) - Atlas INTERSECTIONS Festival - Atlas Performing Arts Center: Sprenger Theater - Washington, DC
    Join us as we present a unique blend of music and science education as part of the INTERSECTIONS 2015 Festival. This wonderful festival presents artists from the Washington DC region and beyond in innovative multidisciplinary performances. We will have multimedia, music, and TED-style talks by NASA astronomers! Last year's website will give you a clue about the type of entertainment you'll find during the whole Festival. Check back January 15, 2015 when tickets go on sale.
