Since 2005, the success of our musicals, concerts, revues, and plays, presented by hundreds of area volunteers, is proof that the performing arts are alive and thriving in west central Illinois. We perform not for fame or money, but out of passion ­– a passion to create quality live entertainment and to raise funds for Spoon River College scholarships.  Our “performance hall door” is open to anyone who shares this passion.  To become a part of the SRC Community Chorus family or to be added to our email distribution list, please contact us at

The SRC Community Chorus appreciates the support of The Two Rivers Arts Council throughout the years including the 2022-23 season.  This not-for-profit arts organization keeps the arts alive by serving the 159,000 residents of Brown, Calhoun, Cass, Fulton, Greene, Hancock, Henderson, Jersey, Mason, McDonough, Pike, Schuyler and Scott counties.

Shows for a Cause:

The SRC Community Chorus operates under the auspices of the SRC Foundation and is entirely self-funded, with occasional support from entities such as Two Rivers Arts Council.  Since its inception, it has raised well over $100,000 for the Foundation’s scholarship program and has established seven permanent, endowed scholarships, each named after a Chorus member or someone special to the Chorus:

  • The Tom Greenwell Memorial Scholarship
  • The Marge Saville Memorial Scholarship
  • The Harley Davis Scholarship
  • The Roger Howerter Memorial Scholarship
  • The Gail A. Mathis Memorial Scholarship
  • The Vicki Murphy Memorial Scholarship
  • The David L. Bishop Memorial Scholarship
