The Downers Grove Music Club is a community music organization fostering a commitment to excellence through high quality musical performances and music education within the west suburban Chicagoland area. 

Our programs are open to the public and are free of charge.  In addition to these events, each season DGMC sponsors a Piano Festival & Competition for students.  Believing that education is paramount to the development of young musicians, the club presents monetary music awards to local deserving high school students.  All awards are funded through dues and through generous donations from DGMC benefactors.

Who Can Join?

Membership in the Downers Grove Music Club is open to anyone who wishes to support our activities.  We encourage membership from both performing and non-performing members.  New members have full rights, privileges and obligations of the club.  We strongly encourage all  performing members to contribute at least one performance per season, as they are able.  Each spring, as part of of their club participation, we encourage members to complete an annual member survey indicating how they wish to participate in the upcoming season..

Why Join?

That's a good question, especially since you can enjoy our concerts and enter students in our festivals without being a member.  The big answer is that you understand the importance of promoting music in your community and DGMC is an active, vibrant group of people who share your views. 

As a member, you will be connected to other musicians through our member directory and newsletters.  If you are a performer, you will have priority over non-members in participating in our concerts.  If you are a teacher, the teacher's fee will be waived when entering students in one of our festivals. 

Further Information
For further information about joining and the benefits of membership please contact our president or any other board member.
