Men’s group seeks singers for holiday concert


Men of all ages who love to sing are invited to participate in the Chorus of Du Page  Holiday Concert.

For the past 51 years, the Chorus of Du Page, a men’s chorus, has been performing in and around Du Page County. And for nearly 11 years, after their weekly rehearsal, many of the members have stopped by Quigley’s Irish Pub to continue singing songs for an appreciative audience. Among owner Nancy Quigley’s favorites is their rousing rendition of  “Qui-qui-qui- Quigley’s” to the tune of the popular WWI-era song,  “K-K-K-Katy.”

In preparation for the holiday season, the Chorus is inviting singers to participate in a limited-obligation activity with a few rehearsals and two or three performances. The group will perform traditional secular and religious holiday selections arranged in men’s four-part harmony.

No experience is necessary, but church singers interested in a more informal musical experience are encouraged to join us.

This men’s holiday concert will be performed at selected venues throughout the Du Page area including a holiday concert at The Trinity Center in Lisle on Saturday, December 1, 2012. The Chorus is in the process of booking other concerts throughout the holiday season.

Rehearsals will be held Tuesday evenings at 7:15PM, in October and November at Our Saviour’s Lutheran Church, 815 S. Washington Street, just south of Edward Hospital in Naperville.

If you are interested in singing with this chorus for their holiday concerts and can commit to the rehearsal schedule, openings are still available.

For information, contact Bruce Rhoades at (708) 243-0749 or email him at Bruce@rbihomes.com.
