Membership Requirements

Members of the Downers Grove Choral Society meet to rehearse on Monday evenings in the Chapel of the Downers Grove First United Methodist Church from 7:30-9:30 pm.

Members are required to attend Monday evening rehearsals prior to the performances, including additional dress rehearsals the week preceding a performance.

Dues for members are $150 for the three-concert season (or $75 per concert). Members are responsible for purchasing their music (available for purchase at the first two rehearsals for each concert) and for purchasing required concert attire.

Members are also expected to assist with operational functions including set up and take down for rehearsals and concerts, fundraising, publicity, and ticket sales.

What is your favorite thing about singing with DGCS?

I learned a lot from chorus rehearsals and performance. The blending of parts, the typical mood of different composer, and how to show them up, to experience their emotions.

Why do you love to sing?

The opportunity to sing is a joy to be shared. Singing is good for the spirit with the plus of enhancing brainpower.

What is your favorite thing about singing with DGCS?

Constantly being challenged musically, and making great friends!

Singing is both challenging and relaxing at the same time. I love being part of recreating a work of art.
