Greenville College Announces Choir's 2014 Spring Concert Season

Greenville College is pleased to announce the Greenville College Choir’s concert itinerary for Spring 2014. 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 87th Anniversary year, the Greenville College Choir will take an extended, 10-day spring tour in the Midwestern United States. 

In the past two years the Greenville College Choir has been invited to perform with the Kingsbury Ensemble (one of the Midwest’s premier professional early music ensembles), as well as at the Illinois Music Educators Conference and the American Choral Directors Association’s Central Division Convention. 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 College 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. 

GC Choir 2013-14Conductor Jeffrey S. Wilson received a Bachelor of Music degree in piano from Augustana College (Rock Island, Illinois). He earned a Master of Music degree in choral music and a 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 GC Choir since 1996.

The Greenville Choir’s tour program includes music from England, Ireland, France, Germany, Poland and America and may be viewed here. The Choir’s spring concert schedule includes the following performances:
