The inspiration behind our name was the noted American composer, Edward MacDowell (1860-1908). We have performed more than 500 times in more than 50 cities throughout the Midwest and Canada. The men have over 500 works covering a wide range of musical styles in their repertoire, of which 25-30 are selected to perform each spring from memory. Every year throughout February and March we give the church choirs a break and donate our talents to a variety of congregations throughout the Fox Valley. We average between 80-100 members; membership is open to all post-high school males who enjoy singing.

The MacDowell Male Chorus is incorporated as a 501,c{3} Non-Profit organization. It is governed by a board of directors consisting of 8 officers, elected by the membership at the annual business meeting in May.
