Our Chorus

ECU singers in close-up in concertr

Elmhurst Choral Union is an auditioned volunteer chorus, singing with a professional orchestra and soloists, performing classical masterworks and great choral music of all eras. Our talented singers range from students to retirees.

We perform two major concerts each year (December and April), and a mini-concert of opera and Broadway (late February). We also appear occasionally at special events in Elmhurst.

Elmhurst Choral Union performs and rehearses at Elmhurst College, where we have been based since our founding in 1952.

Elmhurst Choral Union Chamber Singers is our small a cappella ensemble available for local community events, churches, and retirement communities.

Our Mission and Vision

Elmhurst Choral Union’s mission is to promote the appreciation and enjoyment of choral music in the community.
