Director's Notes

We're Turning Thirty!

Birthdays are wonderful occasions! They're a time to celebrate with family and friends, and to enjoy being together! The Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Chorale is about to celebrate a birthday—our 30th. And YOU are invited to the celebration!

We hope you'll be in our audience on either Friday, May 8 (7:30 pm) or Saturday, May 9 (3:00 pm) as we present There Is Sweet Music. Both concerts will be at College Church (corner of Washington and Seminary in Wheaton). Music for this concert includes the beautiful title song, There Is Sweet Music Here. The setting of this Tennyson poem is by Greg Gilpin, and provides an evocative musical setting for the text. There's also a rollicking arrangement of Bound for the Promised Land, complete with four-hand piano accompaniment, and a beautiful setting by Ola Gjeilo of St. Augustine's prayer from more than 1500 years ago! The chorale will be joined by saxophonist Howard Whitaker and French horn player Corin Droullard.

We think you'll enjoy this concert! Why not make plans to celebrate with us? Tickets are available here on this website. Or you may phone 630.415.3066. We'll look forward to seeing you!
