Here is a bit more information about us.
Ecco strives to be an elite chamber choir. Most of the singers have some kind of choral background and are looking to utilize these skills. Singers are adults and span in age range. It is our goal to perform concerts that are easily accessible to all listeners. It is also important to us that Singers feel challenged in a fun, supportive way. We perform music that is meaningful and it is our hope that our music makes a difference in our world in some way. We work hard to perform at our absolute BEST at every concert.
As a Singer in Ecco you can expect that the director will be prepared and organized for every rehearsal and concert. Music will be selected from a variety of genres based on what the choir is best able to effectively communicate. There are a limited number of positions in the choir.
Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings 7:00 to 9:45 pm. The majority of rehearsals are currently held at Elim Chapel (Spence and Portage) except for the last rehearsal before every concert and the dress rehearsal. Those rehearsals, as well as the concerts, are held at Crescent Fort Rouge United Church. The Big Band Dance will be held at Judy Silver Student Commons - Maples Collegiate (1330 Jefferson Avenue). There are three full-day rehearsals (October, January, and March). These events are designed to help us get to know each other and also to experience great music in a pristine setting.
