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 tiny to titanic, now with more than one hundred singers in several groups that have shared the stage with the Apollo Chorus of Chicago, the Evanston Symphony, Barry Manilow, S.O.U.L. Creations, 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 concerts at schools and community centers.
Join the ECC for the 2013-2014 Season as we collaborate with the Evanston Symphony, the North Shore Choral Society and the Northwestern Wildcats (among others), and feature an exhilarating repertoire of songs in a wide variety of styles from around the world. Besides building the musicianship of our young choristers, we’ll be building 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.
