Capricon is proud to announce Musical Guest Tim Griffin!
Tim Griffin is an award-winning teacher, musician, and storyteller with four albums out and a fifth on the way. He also runs the educational nonprofit GriffinEd, using music to teach science, math, history, and other subjects to grades K-8 for no charge.
Tim Griffin was chosen by the Annenberg Foundation in 2013 as a member of their Alchemy academy for leaders of nonprofits showing exceptional promise. In 2014, they chose him again. He is an artist in residence teaching songwriting to at-risk kids for several art and science organizations in Los Angeles county, and was a finalist in the 2016 Social Innovation Fast Pitch, a Shark-Tank-like competition for innovative nonprofits.
Tim has been a featured musical guest of the National Science Teachers’ Association, California Science Teachers’ Association, AAAS, Mensa, Interfilk, hundreds of schools, and a bunch of sci-fi and filk conventions; yet he remains totally approachable and is looking for collaborators if you’re interested.
Tim’s music, along with lyrics, notes on classroom use, chords, etc. is all free at GriffinEd’s website:

Members of Phandemonium,
Every year, Capricon transforms the Westin Chicago Northshore into a big tent celebration of genre awesomeness. Magic you say? Not even. Awesome doesn’t just happen. Each Capricon begins as a cool idea that brings amazing people together to create exponentially more awesome.
Sound like a good time? It gets better. We are already preparing for Capricon 38, and we want YOU to make it awesome!
The Board of Phandemonium is currently seeking candidates for Con Chair of Capricon 38: Have you ever said, “If I ran this convention….?” or “You know what I think?” Then consider running a Capricon!
We are currently seeking qualified candidates to apply for Chairperson of Capricon 38 in 2018. Contact boardpresident@phandemoniu
Thank you all for your continued support and enthusiasm! There would literally be no Capricon without you. See you all next February!
President of the Board, Phandemonium, Inc.
