Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale Christmas 2018

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 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!

What Audience Members Are Saying...

  • "I attended on Saturday and it was wonderful. This definitely will become a Christmas tradition for me. Everything was beautiful from the beginning to the end and I especially enjoyed the ending with the lighting of the candles and Silent Night. The entire concert was just what was needed to put me in the Christmas Spirit. Great job everyone!"
  • "Everything was beautiful - the music selections, the voices, the orchestra, the lighting, the processional. The clustering of the 'light' songs at the end was a highlight. Thanks for everyone’s commitment to excellence."
