  • Naperville Men’s Glee Club Organizes “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” Jan 15, 2015 5:23 PM
    The Naperville Men’s Glee Club (NMGC) is organizing “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015”, a community chorus of men and women touched by cancer. Local singers will come together starting in February to share hope and experience the rewards of musical performance. Cancer patients, survivors, caregivers, family members and other singers are invited to join. There is no cost to participate and enrollment is available at napervillemensgleeclub.org or by calling 630-448-0518. The volunteer chorus will start weekly one hour rehearsals at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, February 7, 2015, at The Church of The Brethren, 1020 West Jefferson, Naperville IL. Building on the success of the 2013 project, NMGC Artistic Director Bonnie Klee Roberts will again conduct “NMGC Voices of Hope”. Roberts explained, “There will be a wide variety of four-part music for the group to sing in the first rehearsal - some will be familiar to the 2013 singers but many songs will be new music to learn over the ten weeks.” Ms. Roberts continued, “It’s important for people to understand that this concert is not intended to be a fundraiser for cancer. The purpose is to gather people who have, or have had, a role in the fight against cancer and to provide an opportunity for them to feel the inspiration, thrill, and happiness that comes through weekly group singing and performance”. “I started thinking about doing Voices of Hope again during those wonderful rehearsals of the first chorus in 2013. After their performance, I received many voice mails, handwritten notes, and emails about the impact and meaning of the project. Reading their stories, I was sold on my premise of group fellowship and the inspiration of song to bring about a special kind of healing. So we decided to do Voices of Hope again in 2015” added Roberts. The Glee Club is expecting a chorus of 200+ men and women and over 110 people have already signed up. Additional information is available at napervillemensgleeclub.org or by calling 630-448-0518. “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” will perform in concert at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, April 26, 2015, at Wentz Concert Hall, on the campus of North Central College, Naperville. The lobby of Wentz Hall will display “Lilly Oncology on Canvas – Expressions of a Cancer Journey”, a traveling art exhibit of award-winning paintings by cancer patients and survivors courtesy of Lilly Oncology and The National Coalition of Cancer Survivorship. Thanks to the generosity of the DuPage Community Foundation, cancer survivors may reserve and receive a complimentary concert ticket starting in April, 2015. General admission and group ticket sales will begin in April 2015. The “NMGC Voices of Hope 2015” project is supported in part by the City of Naperville SECA Fund, the Illinois Arts Council, the DuPage Community Foundation, and Genentech. The Naperville Men’s Glee Club was chartered in 1988 as a 501(c)(3) corporation. Sponsored in part by the City of Naperville, the Illinois Arts Council, the DuPage Community Foundation and many generous local businesses and citizens, they have earned a national reputation as a high caliber male chorus. The Glee Club has performed with many prestigious collegiate glee clubs (male and female) including the U. S. Naval Academy, Miami University, Penn State, Notre Dame, the University of Illinois, Pitt, Ohio University and the University of Michigan. In 2013, NMGC celebrated its 25th anniversary of “Bringing Harmony to Life” with a year of special concerts including “NMGC Voices of Hope”, the President’s Day Choral Festival honoring JFK at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D. C., and their 25th Anniversary Concert with the Varsity Men’s Glee Club from the University of Illinois.
