Become an ECMC Champion!

Empire City Men’s Chorus is deeply appreciative of all our donors. We are grateful for every dollar, every kind word, and every minute of time that is given to us. Our CHAMPIONS are a select group of our strongest supporters who give generously to the chorus, not just financially, but by their faithful attendance at our concerts and events, their enthusiastic word-of-mouth and their engagement with ECMC and our members.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Vince Peterson, ECMC is in a period of exciting artistic growth, and you can be a part of this! Your contribution will enable us to commission new choral works, perform in adventurous venues, collaborate with outstanding orchestras and, most importantly empower our communities through modern, live choral music. We invite you to give & join our Champions program today!

Our Champions receive a personalized experience and perspective of the chorus: 

●     Regular newsletter communications allowing you to the first to know of chorus activities, upcoming events and background information on our repertoire

●     Elevated access at concerts: Personal engagement by chorus leadership, champagne toasts and hors d’oeuvres, and priority seating
Cuts the cost of supplies and audition space

●     Private “talk back” sessions with Artistic Director Vince Peterson

●     Invitations to chorus rehearsals for a behind-the-scenes look at the artistic process
