Chris Gillmore grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and invested his collegiate years in the Men’s Glee Club (2012–2016). While in the club, he worked as the alumni relations chair helping organize MGC alumni tailgates, the MGC Alumni Reunion concert in 2014, and the MGC Alumni newsletter. His MGC travels took him to Rutgers for the Intercollegiate Men's Choruses (IMC) Conference and New York City to sing at the Lincoln Center. Chris received The James Gallagher Spirit Award in 2016.
After college, Chris moved to Attica, Ohio where he taught grades 5–12 vocal and general music. After two years teaching there, Chris moved back to Columbus. He is currently teaching grades 6–8 vocal music at Rosemore Middle School in Whitehall, Ohio. He enjoys teaching this age group and hopes to continue at the school for years to come.
