Rehearsals Start Next Thursday

Rehearsals Begin 9/23 for a Merry Messiah Christmas

Rehearsals start at 6:00 - 8:00
Davis Middle School

I am very excited to share the theme for the Evanston Civic Orchestra and Chorus’s upcoming December concert: A Merry Messiah Christmas!  Not only will we explore some wonderful, if lesser-known favorites from Handel’s Messiah, like the uplifting Glory to God and dance-like And the Glory, we will also hear familiar favorites such as the well-known Hallelujah Chorus, the resounding O Come All Ye Faithful, and the triumphant Joy to the World. Each selection from Messiah will be paired with a traditional Christmas carol as a way to highlight the sacredness and meaning of each piece. We hope you will join us at our first rehearsal on September 23rd to share in this exploration of our most beloved holiday melodies and hymns.

COVID-19 Protocol

ECOC will create a rehearsal environment where members can make personal decisions about masking and social distancing.  While we are together, be respectful of others and their personal space  Don’t assume everyone else feels the same way you do.  We do ask that members skip rehearsals if they have any cold or flu symptoms, no matter how slight, or have been in direct contact with others who are ill.  Members should understand that they participate in ECOC at their own risk.
