Original Post April 2,017 / The Chorus of DuPage, a men’s barbershop chorus presents its Spring Show beginning at 5:30PM on Saturday, May 20, 2017. The concert will be held in Goodwin Hall on the campus of Benedictine University, 5700 College Road in Lisle.
The Spring Show includes performances by the 40 member Chorus of DuPage and their talented, entertaining quartets. During the evening the chorus will celebrate Armed Forces Day with a musical tribute recognizing veterans and today’s men and women in our military.
The show features Boardwalk, a guest quartet from Atlanta, Georgia. The men recreate songs that combine great barbershop harmony with folk music and some instrumentation. The group’s inspiration is the music and fashion of the 1920’s as they entertain with songs and memories of “The Good Old Days.” The quartet was invited to compete in the Barbershop Harmony Society’s international competition for barbershop quartets the past two years.
All general admission seats are $20. Tickets may be purchased by calling (630) 737-9199 or online at http://www.chorusofdupage.com/springshow.
The Chorus of DuPage is a member of the Barbershop Harmony Society, an international men’s singing organization with over 20,000 members and nearly 800 chapters in the United States and Canada. The Chorus of DuPage meets weekly in Naperville and has performed in and around the DuPage area for more than 55 years.

Editor’s Note: After weekly rehearsals on Tuesday evenings, many members of the Chorus of DuPage stop at Quigley’s Irish Pub where they entertain patrons in perfect 4-part harmony while they enjoy a cold beverage. They even wrote a special set of lyrics to the tune of K-K-K-Katy for “Q-Q-Q-Quigley’s, Beautiful Quigley’s…”
