Greenville College Choir

The Greenville College Choir was founded in 1927 by Dr. Robert Woods. Its first public performance was at the inauguration of Dr. Leslie R. Marston as president of GC that same year. Dr. Jeffrey S. Wilson is the Director of Choral Studies at Greenville and has conducted the Choir and Chamber Singers since 1996.

Since its inception the Greenville College Choir has attained a widespread reputation for performing sacred choral music of the highest quality and appears in as many as 30 performances on and off campus each year. The choir tours annually throughout the United States and Canada. A tour to Central and Eastern Europe is currently being planned for March 2008.

This past January the College Choir and the Chamber Singers served as choir-in-residence at the Calvin Symposium on Worship, an international conference which included over 1,500 participants from 35 different countries. The College Choir has been asked to perform this coming February 19-21 at the American Choral Directors Association (ACDA) Central Division Convention in Grand Rapids, MI. The Greenville Chamber Singers is the premier chamber choral group on campus and recently sang at the IMEA Illinois All-State Convention in Peoria, Illinois.
