Your Impact

Empire City Men’s Chorus is deeply appreciative of all our donors.  We're grateful for every dollar, every kind word, and every minute of time that is given to us.  At a basic level, your donations directly enable our operating budget.  More crucially, however, your donations directly enable ECMC's Mission & Values, which include the commissioning of new music from modern composers (as with the ECMC Composer-in-Residence program), performances of adventurous music in adventurous venues, collaborations with local NYC artists, and the empowerment-via-choral-music of our listeners and their shared communities.

Company Matching

If you have the ability to acquire company matching gifts, note it can automatically double your  support!   Please email as to let us know if you or your company are amenable to matching, or with any other questions related to your support of ECMC.  Thank you!



ECMC Champions represent our strongest supporters who give over-and-beyond our general appeals by their faithful attendance to concerts and events, their enthusiastic support outside of events, and their engagement with the chorus mission and membership.  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!   We invite you to give and join our Champions program today!

  • Private Recording Session access, including “talk back” sessions with Artistic Director Vince Peterson and direct member engagement

  • Preferred Seating, with the best seating in the house to our concerts

  • Champions Newsletter communications with exclusive offers and year-round updates on programming and chorus activities

  • Rehearsal Invitations for a behind-the-scenes look at the artistic process
