Evanston Civic Orchestra and Chorus (ECOC)

The Evanston Civic Orchestra and Evanston Civic Chorus are community performing groups with membership coming from Evanston and the surrounding area. 

Auditions are not required, though membership is typically open to high-school age youth and adults with a moderate degree of training or experience who can perform the music.  Younger students are accepted when they are musically able to perform the music, socially mature, and recommended by a teacher. 

The orchestra has limited spots available for some woodwinds at this time, but all other instruments and vocal parts are welcome.  

The Evanston Civic Orchestra and Chorus presents at least one performance each in the Fall and/or Holiday Season and during the Winter.

Coming December 2020 – the Christmas Gala!  The Gala not only features both the Evanston Civic Chorus and the Evanston Civic Orchestra, but musical groups throughout the community.  

Orchestra & Chorus rehearsals will be held on Thursdays from 6-8 p.m. at Davis Middle School starting in September, and new members are welcome! 

For up-to-date registration information, rehearsal dates, and concert details, visit our websites or Facebook page.
