Evanston Children's Choir
The ECC is an after-school treble choir based in Evanston, accepting young people grades 2 through high school from all over the Greater Chicago area. We sing all types of both secular and sacred music, with an emphasis on multiculturalism. The ECC currently consists of over 100 singers divided into three levels: the Junior Choir (beginning), Intermezzo (intermediate), and the Concert Choir (advanced). We strive to make the choir as accessible as possible, both to new members and to our audience. Accordingly, we do not turn any child away because of money, and we offer our outreach performances and self-produced concerts free of charge.
The ECC performs in major venues such as the Rosemont Theatre, Evanston's Alice Millar Chapel, and the Harris Theater in Chicago's Millennium Park, and is also active among a variety of Evanston locales and events, including outreach concerts at Evanston public schools and community centers. We often perform with other major artists and organizations such as the Apollo Chorus of Chicago, the Evanston Symphony, S.O.U.L. Creations, the North Shore Choral Society and Barry Manilow.
Our rehearsal location is the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes St., Studio 107, in Evanston.
