Famed sex and relationship expert Laura Berman will narrate Chicago a cappella’s performance of “The Birds and the Bees: Songs of Nature and Naughtiness” in Evanston on October 29. The event takes place at Nichols Concert Hall.
Berman will bring her irrepressible wit and charm to the stage as guest artist of the area’s premier vocal ensemble. Her narration brings a sexy twist to this sensual and funny musical romp.
The acclaimed vocal ensemble Chicago a cappella first produced the concert “The Birds and the Bees” in 2010 with artistic director Jonathan Miller narrating. This updated version of the concert features music about nature and love, with styles ranging from Renaissance works and classical pieces such as “The Flight of the Bumblebee” to popular songs like “Fever,” “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” and “Afternoon Delight.”
“We knew if we wanted to do the concert again, we were going to want to have something special. And who better to narrate a concert about ‘the birds and the bees’ than a sex therapist? We immediately thought of Dr. Laura Berman.” says Miller. “We were very fortunate she was so enthusiast about our project.”
In between the songs, Dr. Laura Berman will provide narration including information about the song choices, poetry, and literature.
Berman is a sex and relationship therapist; TV, radio, and Internet host; and best-selling author. She frequently appears on shows such as Dr. Oz and WCUI's "You and Me." In addition to having her own practice in Chicago, she is an assistant clinical professor at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University.
