June Maturing Adult Dinner and Program featuring The Singing Men of Oak Brook
For more than thirty years, the Singing Men of Oak Brook have performed throughout the Chicago area, sharing their love of music with a variety of audiences. While they primarily sing at churches and retirement communities, down through the years the group has been invited to perform in a wide range of concert venues, including invitations to share their rousing rendition of the Star Spangled Banner to open games at Wrigley Field and the United Center, appearing as backup singers for operatic tenor Daniel Rodriguez at the Ravinia Festival, and performing a concert for inmates at the Cook County Jail.
This non-denominational men's chorus began in 1985 as a result of the vision of the late Dr. Art DeKruyter, founding pastor of Christ Church of Oak Brook. He encouraged the creation of a men's chorus, and invited those within his own church—and others from the area—to be part of the group. Today the thirty singers come mainly from Chicago's western and southern suburbs, and represent many walks of life and church affiliations. (WBC's own John Howland sings with the group.)
We look forward to a fun and inspiring concert that draws from the group's repertoire of patriotic music and show tunes, as well as hymn interpretations, spirituals, and religious classics.
