The Eagan Men's Chorus

  Back Eagan Men's Chorus (Dec 2008) Next  

History: The Chorus was founded in 1983 under the sponsorship of UniSys and was called the UniSys Chorus. It's very first public performance was at the dedication of the Eagan Public Library. Since then The Chorus has presented nearly 300 concerts to community, church, and senior functions not including performing at uncounted corporate events. After two corporate mergers left The Chorus without a sponsor, the City of Eagan in 1999 generously welcomed it to the community. Under the sponsorship of The Parks and Recreation Department the Eagan Men's Chorus was able to continue fulfilling it's goal of bringing the joys of music to the community.

Repertoire: The Eagan Men's Chorus' wide repertoire includes Gospel, Pop & Show tunes, Spirituals, and the Classics. The Chorus' huge sheet music library includes favorite arrangements of the works of well known classic and contemporary composers.

Affiliation: The Eagan Men's Chorus is a member of the Associated Male Choruses of America. The Chorus participates during the year in various joint events with other choruses throughout the Upper Midwest and Central Canada. This includes the Big Sing where over 400 voices unite for a weekend of song and fellowship.

(Updated Mar 2001) The Eagan Men's Chorus serves as ambassador of music for Eagan, performing at senior citizen centers, nursing homes, churches and civic functions. The Chorus performs under the direction of Mr. David Campen, Choral Director and is accompanied by Mrs. IvaNell Monson. The chorus rehearses at Peace Reformed Church, 2180 Glory Drive, Eagan, Monday nights from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

The chorus is made up of men from the community who enjoy singing and bringing music to the hearts of people. The chorus was founded about 17 years ago under the sponsorship of the Sperry Corporation and performed as a company outreach activity for Sperry and its successor companies until 1999. In 1999, the chorus formed an alliance with the Eagan Parks and Recreation Department to broaden its community base, expand its membership and better serve the needs of the community.
