Founded in 1993, Empire City Men's Chorus was initially formed by members of the gay community interested in singing predominantly classical men's choral music. For the last two decades, ECMC has evolved to develop interesting and meaningful programs which boast a variety of well-known composers, newly commissioned works, artistic collaborations, special-guest soloists, and themes of social justice and equality.  


Empire City Men's Chorus is an auditioned men’s chorus that seeks to perform adventurous and eclectic repertoire from early to modern music with emphasis on new works from living composers. ECMC’s performances reflect contemporary social issues to inspire an intimate musical dialogue with audiences.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

ECMC performance venues are ADA-compliant and wheelchair accessible spaces.
