Greenville College Announces Choir’s 2013 Spring Concert Season

The Greenville College Choir (Greenville, Illinois) is pleased to announce its concert itinerary for 2012-2013.  Founded in 1927 by Dr. Robert W. Woods, the Greenville Choir has attained a widespread reputation for performing sacred choral music of the highest quality. During the current 86th Anniversary year the Greenville College Choir has been invited to perform in St. Louis with the professional early music ensemble known as the Kingsbury Ensemble (April).  The choir will also take an extended 10-day spring tour to the South Central United States. 

Last year the Choir was invited to perform at the Illinois Music Educators Conference and the American Choral Directors Association's Central Division Convention.  In November 2009 the College Choir performed with the Boston Camerata at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis.  In April 2011 the Choir sang with the American Kantorei at Concordia Seminary (St. Louis).  The Choir regularly joins with the Greenville Choral Union for concerts of larger choral-orchestral works such as Bach's Magnificat, Mozart's Requiem, and the annual Christmas performance of Handel's Messiah.

The Greenville Choir consists of 45 undergraduate students from various fields of liberal arts study, including the College's five music degree programs. As the flagship choral ensemble of Greenville College, the choir presents as many as twenty off-campus performances each year as part of its annual tour. Students' dedication to the program is consistently made evident by the professional quality of their performances. 

Conductor Jeffrey S. Wilson received his Bachelor of Music degree in piano from Augustana College (Rock Island, Illinois). He earned the Master of Music degree in choral music and the Doctor of Musical Arts degree in choral conducting and literature from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Wilson has served as conductor of the choir since 1996.
