The Swedish Glee Club of Lake County is an SATB chorus that rehearses in Lake Forest, IL. Originally founded in 1905 as a Waukegan-based, men’s-only chorus, the current Swedish Glee Club is comprised of men and women who find singing together a great source of community as well as a stress reliever from their busy work lives.
We present three planned concerts each year (late February, early June, and early December). Our December concert is performed at Chevy Chase Country Club in Wheeling AND is paired with a wonderful Julbord (a Swedish Christmas smörgasbord). Every three years, we gather with other choruses from across the U.S. for singing conventions (next convention is in Portland, OR, July 2019).
The Swedish Glee Club continues to promote Swedish and Scandinavian song, food, and culture. Male and female singers ages 16 and older are welcome. Paid section leaders positions are available.
Not Swedish or Scandinavian? That’s okay! We’ll cultivate your affinity for the wonderful Swedish culture.
Join us on Monday evenings from September through early June - it’s a nice way to start the work week!
