Our Mission: 
"To stimulate the musical ability of the Members and inspire interest in the art of music."

Student Scholarship Contest
The focal point of the Music Club is the annual Student Scholarship Contest and Recital.  The Music Club has sponsored the contest since 1949.

Due to the pandemic the Glen Ellyn-Wheaton Music Club will not be holding any in-person club meetings until February 2021. Sadly, our 2021 Scholarship Contest is cancelled, as well. Hopefully we will be able to resume our normal activities early next year.

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.
