Musicality is a group that began in 2008 after a group of students from Curie Metropolitan High School (Chicago, Illinois) expressed interest in continuing music after the spring musical had ended. Music educator, Michael Gibson, decided to start a volunteer after-school vocal ensemble. The premiere ensemble for Musicality was very unbalanced with few male singers. Despite these problems, the inexperienced group had a very successful opening season, and their first performance had excellent reviews.
Since then, Musicality has quickly grown into an elite audition-based ensemble. Musicality focuses more on potential instead of mere talent. Dedication and professionalism are two of the most important aspects of a Musicality member. The ensemble prides itself on exploring various musical genres with the addition of theatrical staging.
The program is intense, meeting several times a week after school, and learning music, staging, and choreography at a fast pace with a focus on musical excellence. Musicality has performed at countless events, such as concerts, graduations, cotillions, memorials, benefit concerts, service learning events, fundraising events, banquets, and more.
Highlights include performances at: Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park, Chicago City Hall, Merchandise Mart, The Chicago Public Schools Board of Education, O'Hare International Airport, Midway International Airport, Soldier Field, GLEE Live Promotional Event, Dwyane Wade's Chicago Has Talent at the Chicago Theater, Hilton Chicago, Sheraton Grand, and the Dolby Theater. Musicality has been featured on NBC, Good Day Chicago, Chicago Tonight, and on a 97.9 The Loop radio jingle. Musicality also has an active YouTube channel where they have gained a fanbase for their covers.  Musicality received a grant from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in July 2016 and was honored at the Grants Banquet at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills, CA.
