Welcome to the Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale
The Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale is celebrating its 30th year of providing an eclectic mix of choral music for Chicago's western suburbs. You'll find everything from the classics to jazz to spirituals on the Chorale's concert programs—all performed by people who love to sing! The Chorale is home to 50-60 singers from a variety of backgrounds. Our goal is to enjoy and appreciate the gift we have in music, and to bring that gift to you in our concerts. We hope to see you in our audience very soon!
Join Us for WINTERSONG 2015
This year's Wintersong concerts promise another wonderful opportunity to sing and to hear the music of Christmas! The Chorale has been in rehearsal since early September, working on selections like Vivaldi's Magnificat. This sparkling 13-minute piece, a setting of Mary's canticle ("My soul doth magnify the Lord"), offers the kind of writing for choir and strings that you'd expect from the composer of the better-known Gloria. And speaking of strings—we have another amazing group of string players joining us this year, and a pair of oboists we know you'll enjoy as well!
In addition to the Magnificat, the Chorale will sing beautiful settings such as Kim Andre Arnesen's Cradle Hymn, and well-known standards such as Jingle Bells and Joy to the World. Especially exciting is Dan Forrest's setting of Angels from the Realms of Glory for choir and four-hand piano! And as always, we'll invite you to join the celebration by singing a few carols with us.
Wintersong 2015: Christmas with the Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale is a great way to begin your celebration of this most wonderful time of the year! See the sidebar on this page for ticket info, and we'll look forward to seeing you there!
