SRC Community Chorus
What is the 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 averages over 70 singers, musicians, and technicians and produces a minimum of two presentations each year.
Past performances include Handel’s MESSIAH; SONGS TO CELEBRATE THE SEASON; THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE; 50 YEARS OF BROADWAY; A GOLDEN HOLIDAY; and BROADWAY, TOO. Proceeds from the performances are used to benefit scholarships or arts programs sponsored by Spoon River College. In the Spring of 2010, a $10,000 named endowed scholarship was created to honor the late Tom Greenwell, a founding member of the community chorus.
Auditions are NOT required for participation and rehearsals are generally scheduled one evening per week for six weeks with one full week of rehearsals prior to the scheduled presentations. Visit the SRC Community Chorus page for more information.
