About Caterpillar Employees Mixed Chorus


The Caterpillar Employees Mixed Chorus was organized on October 29, 1941. The club's first appearance was at a Christmas program in the East Peoria HH Theatre. The Chorus was founded as a musical outlet for employees, retirees, and dependents to foster and promote the love of music for the enjoyment of employees and their families. Caterpillar Inc. has sponsored the Employees Mixed Chorus for the past 77 years, making it the oldest employee activity of its kind in the world. Every fall the Chorus presents a major musical production with additional Chorus musical activities including a Spring Variety Show performed at local retirement communities.
