Caterpillar Employees Mixed Chorus

Caterpillar Inc. has sponsored the Employees Mixed Chorus since 1941, making it the oldest known corporate-sponsored activity of its kind in the United States. CEMC's first official appearance was at a Christmas program in the Building HH Show Room Theater in East Peoria in December 1941. The chorus was founded as a musical outlet for all employees, retirees and dependents whose talents could then be enjoyed by the community as a whole. The chorus presents the annual fall "Cat Show" which has become an eagerly awaited opportunity for family entertainment. In addition, the chorus has various musical activities throughout the year, including a touring Spring Show performed at local retirement homes, appearances at Dozer Park, and miscellaneous Christmas performances.
