The Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Music Club was formed in 2004 from the merger of the Glen Ellyn Musicians’ Club, founded in 1933, and the Wheaton Music Club, founded in 1955.

From September through May, the Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Music Club presents monthly programs featuring members and guest musicians. Monthly programs are held in both member homes and larger venues like churches and retirement communities.

Performances at meetings typically include solos and ensembles featuring orchestra instruments and voice. Presentations have also included piano-four-hands, organ, harpsichord, harp, period instruments, and the premiere of a member’s composition.
