Naperville Men’s Glee Club presents Christmas Presence 2019

Join the Naperville Men’s Glee Club (NMGC) for Christmas Presence 2019 as they perform a Christmas concert for the whole family.

On January 9, 1988, twenty-four men responded to a newspaper article, a few posters, and a couple of phone calls and found their way to the sanctuary of the Church of the Brethren for the first rehearsal of The Naperville Men’s Glee Club. Thirty-one years later, the community has been delighted and entertained through the groups many community concerts each year.
