Galesburg Community Chorus was organized in 1945 to provide singers an opportunity to participate in choral music in its larger forms and give the Galesburg community an opportunity to enjoy great choral works. Now in its 71st season, the Chorus continues to offer a tradition of choral excellence to both singers and audience members. Our mission is to “share the gift of great choral music, inspire new generations with the love of singing, and broaden our reach to all people.” Galesburg Community Chorus is supported by the generosity of private donors, sponsors, local businesses, ticket sales, membership dues, and grants. We also offer scholarships to college-bound high school seniors interested in singing with the Chorus. For more information about singing with us, or if you would like to make a tax-deductable contribution, contact us.
The Chorus rehearses in the Jay Rehearsal Hall in the Ford Center for Fine Arts at Knox College on Mondays at 7 pm.
