Who We Are

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. 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.

Our home rehearsal location is the Noyes Cultural Arts Center, 927 Noyes St., Studio 107, in Evanston. The ECC's Core Program consists of three levels as follows: the Junior Choir (beginning), Intermezzo (intermediate), and the Concert Choir (advanced).  We also offer a casual "Family Choir."  You can read more about each Choir here.  The Choirs meet at the following times:
