Since its founding in 1945, there have been thousands of singers in the Galesburg Community Chorus. Although all records of the individual performers have not been located for the first 50 years, there have been over 650 singers in the past 27 seasons alone. As a non-auditioned choir focusing on classical music, the Chorus provides an outlet for singers to perform challenging music and shares that music with the community. Chorus members range from gifted life-long musicians to persons who simply love to sing, including members from students to senior citizens. The singers come from a variety of locations and pasts, and all are welcome.
