Welcome to Downers Grove Music Club

Downers Grove Music Club (DGMC) is a nonprofit musical arts organization founded in 1927 in Downers Grove, Illinois. We believe the arts support vibrant communities, and we aspire to connect people to the musical arts and local artists through public concerts and education programs. DGMC also makes investments that strengthen musical arts development in our schools and community.

Each year DGMC offers free public concerts; sponsors a piano festival for local students; and recognizes talented high school students with music awards to help them further their studies.

DGMC also publishes a Directory of Music Teachers and a List of Accompanists, which is updated every two years and distributed to all area schools, libraries and music stores.

Our members include performing musicians (professional and amateur), music teachers, music students and non-performing music lovers. Members receive newsletters, special announcements, and a members directory. Membership is also open to ensembles and organizations, which benefit from increased visibility in the community through our members, events and website.
