General Information

Participation

All participants must register for each session and provide contact information. Registration will be activated several weeks prior to the beginning of the session. The online registration form is short and straightforward. If you have questions, please email us.

Sessions

The ECOC typically has a fall session and a spring session followed by a summer break.  Occasionally, we perform during the summer, but rehearsals are limited.

Member Dues

Dues are collected before each session to help pay for music, the director, concertmaster, the accompanist, marketing, and other expenses.  Members choosing to pay for the entire year in the fall receive a discount.

  • Fall or Spring Session:  $25 Adults; $20 Students 
  • Fall & Spring Sessions Combined:   $45 Adults; $35 Students (sessions paid in the fall)

Payment Options

  • Cash 
  • Check (payable to Evanston Civic Orchestra and Chorus)
