Welcome to the Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale
The Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale has been providing an eclectic mix of choral music for Chicago's western suburbs for more than 30 years. 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!
Open Pre-Tour Rehearsal: Come and Hear Us!
On June 17th, the Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale will leave for a 10-day performance tour beginning in Barcelona, Spain, continuing to Montserrat, Carcassonne, Limoux, Sarlat-la-Canéda, and the Perigord Region, and ending in Bordeaux, France.
The group will be singing informally and formally at various venues and providing a special performance during the Fête de la Musique. We are excited to include concerts en route with the Chorale Populaire de Limoux in Limoux, the Ensemble Chorale de Sarlat in Sarlat-la-Canéda, and the Chorale Pizzicati in Glen Ellyn's Sister City of Le Bouscat.
You are invited to attend the Chorale's final rehearsal on June 11th at 11:00 a.m. at College Church, 335 E. Seminary, Wheaton. There you will hear the entire concert program we will be performing in Spain and France. This rehearsal is open to the general public and is free of charge, so invite your friends, neighbors, and family members to come and enjoy!
Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo's Evening Prayer is a beautiful setting of Augustine's text. Enjoy this May 2015 recording of the Chorale performing this piece, along with photos of Norway from one of the group's tenors, Mark Peterson.
