Community Chorus


SRC Community Chorus

The SRC Community Chorus was established in 2005-06 by a generous grant from the Community Foundation of Central Illinois. Its purpose is to provide music education through rehearsal and performance of specific genres of music. The Chorus now has over 90 singers, musicians, and technicians and produces a minimum of two presentations each year.

Past performances include Handel’s MESSIAH; MAN OF LA MANCHA, THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE; 50 YEARS OF BROADWAY; A GOLDEN HOLIDAY; YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN and more.

Proceeds from the performances are used to benefit scholarships or arts programs sponsored by Spoon River College. The chorus has contributed to the establishment of the Harley L. Davis Scholarship, the Tom Greenwell Memorial Scholarship, and the Marge Saville Memorial Scholarship and has raised over $35,000 from ticket sales.

The Chorus and the SRC Foundation recently assisted with funding for a new LED lighting system in the theater in Taylor Hall. The system was installed by award-winning light designer Jacob Welch, an SRC alum.
