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.
The 2014-2015 Season featured collaborations with acclaimed artists and performances at a multitude of events including the opening of the RACE: Are We So Different? exhibit at the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, An Evanston Symphony Christmas, the Downtown Evanston Holiday Bash & Tree Lighting plus two choral festivals with choirs from all across Chicagoland, featuring an exhilarating repertoire of songs in a wide variety of styles from around the world. Our 2015-2016 Season promises more collaborations with our growing network of fellow artists, including a special concert in the spring together with Japan's Kyoto Concert Choir and the North Shore Choral Society. 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.
