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 Chicago Philharmonic, 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 2017-2018 Season has already seen a multitude of exciting events and collaborations! In October the Concert Choir made its debut with the Chicago Philharmonic in Carl Orff's masterpiece, Carmina Burana. This was followed by a series of Holiday performances, including the Evanston Symphony Holiday Concert, the Downtown Evanston Holiday Bash & Tree Lighting, an exclusive engagement at Glen View Club and our own gala all-ECC Holiday Concert at Alice Millar Chapel. Events in 2018 kick off with our annual performance at Evanston's Day of Celebration in honor of Dr. Lartin Luther King, Jr., followed by the latest edition of the Three Choirs Live Choral Festival with Pro Musica from Oak Park and our new friends from Michigan, the Ann Arbor Youth Chorale, in February. Later comes a special collaboration with the Unitarian Church of Evanston Choir, our annual appearance at the Young Evanston Artists Festival and, of course, our season-ending celebration: the ECC Spring Concert in May.
We look forward to continuing to build a community of young choirsters and patrons of that most embracing of arts, the art of opening hearts to song. Come sing with us!
The Evanston Children's Choir has received the Mayor's Award for the Arts.
