Eugene Concert Choir Origin Eugene, Oregon, USA Genres Classical Years active 1975–present Associated acts Eugene Vocal Arts Ensemble Website Eugene Concert Choir is a 501(c)(3) non-profit choral organization based in Eugene, Oregon, United States. It consists of two mixed-voice choruses: the 100-member Eugene Concert Choir (ECC), and the semi-professional chamber group Eugene Vocal Arts Ensemble (EVAE). The organization is a resident company of the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, which is the primary performance venue for the choirs. The EVAE also regularly performs at other venues, such as the Shedd Institute. ECC frequently collaborates with the Oregon Mozart Players. The choir undertakes overseas tours every three or four years. The most recent tours were to Australia in 2003, China in 2006, and Europe in 2009[1][2]. Contents 1 Repertoire 1.1 Concert Choir 1.2 Vocal Arts Ensemble 2 History 3 Personnel 4 Discography 5 Notes 6 External links // Repertoire Concert Choir ECC's focus is on performing choral masterworks, such as Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem, Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, Berlioz's Requiem, and Handel's Messiah. On April 26, 2008, directed by guest conductor Zvonimir Hačko, the choir presented the American premiere of the Croatian Mass, a 2004 work by the pre-eminent Croatian composer Igor Kuljerić.[3][4] ECC often lightens the concert season by presenting more popular fare in its mid-season concerts.[5] Past performances have included shows titled The Big Band Era and The Sixties. Vocal Arts Ensemble EVAE performs works more appropriate for a chamber group. These range from Renaissance motets, English madrigals, Romantic art songs, to 20th century jazz and new age music. In 2007, it performed a voice-only arrangement of Bohemian Rhapsody, which was originally recorded by the English rock band Queen. This was also the choir's first performance at the new Richard E. Wildish Community Theater in Springfield, Oregon[6]. In December, 2008, after a ten-year hiatus, EVAE brought back their popular "English Madrigal Dinner." Guests were treated to Elizabethen pageantry, song and dance, and a multi-course feast.[7] History The Eugene Concert Choir was founded in 1975. It was originally called the Eugene Community Chorus.
