The Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale has been providing an eclectic mix of choral music for Chicago's western suburbs for more than 35 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 60-70 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!
The Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale is proud to announce that Kevin Lange has accepted the position of Collaborative Pianist. Below, Music Director Jennifer Whiting shares a conversation with Kevin to introduce him to the Chorale and to the community. Welcome, Kevin!
The Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale has received a COVID-19 Response Fund Grant from DuPage Foundation.
The Chorale was one of 24 DuPage County not-for-profit organizations with a program specific to the arts to receive a grant through DuPage Foundation's most recent COVID-19 Response Fund grant program, due to the advocacy efforts of Arts DuPage, the Foundation's initiative for all things art in the County.
With help from Arts DuPage Advisory Committee member Sheila Rutledge, who is also a DuPage County Board member, the Foundation was able to secure and grant $300,000 in Federal Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds from DuPage County.
Through a speedy, but thorough, grant process, a small working group of DuPage Foundation volunteers evaluated 27 grant applications based on specific criteria required for CARES Act Funds to meet the deadline.
From the start of the pandemic through the end of 2020, DuPage Foundation awarded $1.7 million on behalf of donors and the community to area not-for-profits from the DuPage Foundation COVID-19 Response Fund developed and funded last spring in five rounds of grant funding and due to contributions from hundreds of residents, businesses, and other organizations.
Our appreciation and thanks to those who made this grant possible for the Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale.
