With a commitment to inclusion and accessibility, positive energy, and mutual respect, the ECC enables children and young adults (ages 7 to 18) to sing their hearts out in several strong, supportive ensembles—ensembles with a solid and growing reputation for musical excellence.
The ECC has performed in major venues including the Rosemont Theatre, Evanston’s Alice Millar Chapel, and the Harris Theater in Chicago’s Millennium Park. The ECC has grown from a mere three singers at its inception to a three-tiered program that continues to expand. ECC ensembles are regularly sought after for collaborations and have shared the stage with the likes of the Apollo Chorus of Chicago, the Evanston Symphony, Barry Manilow, S.O.U.L. Creations, the Ondas Ensemble and the North Shore Choral Society. All the while, since its founding in 2002, the ECC has remained committed to its roots, serenading Evanstonians young and old in free outreach performances at schools and community centers.
Our 2015-2016 Season opens with a featured performance by our Concert Choir at the Illinois One State Together in the Arts conference in September, to be followed by a multitude of Holiday events including An Evanston Symphony Christmas and the Downtown Evanston Holiday Bash & Tree Lighting. The remainder of our season promises even more collaborations with our growing network of fellow artists, including the International Friendship concert in April with Japan's Kyoto Concert Choir and the North Shore Choral Society, as well as other expected choral festivals that will feature our usual exhilarating repertoire of songs in a wide variety of styles from around the world. Besides building the musicianship of our young choristers, we continue to build a community of patrons of that most embracing of arts, the art of opening hearts to song. Come sing with us!
The Evanston Children's Choir is a recipient of the Mayor's Award for the Arts.
