Inspiring and engaging young performers through quality experiences that create community and nurture a love of the arts.
Prelude is ECC's group of 2nd-4th graders. Led by Music Director Lisa Cole, these students learn the foundations of choral singing, acting, public speaking, and the confidence to perform for an audience. In addition to their choir and musical theater productions, these students have a variety of other community performance opportunities, such as at our annual trip to the Life Care Center of Evergreen.
Prelude generally meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30-6pm and is $60 per month. Students can choose to participate in only one semester but especially for new performers the full year membership is recommended.
ECC's Company is comprised of students in 5th-8th grade who are ready to take their performing arts experience to a new level. Students from all backgrounds are encouraged to audition regardless of prior arts experience, but should be prepared to work hard toward a professional quality choir production. Under the Artistic direction of Lindy Casados and Stage Director Gail Montgomery, our members receive high-quality instruction, work as a team, build confidence, and improve their artistic abilities.
Company generally meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:30-6:30 from late August - early May. Membership dues are $70 per month and students can choose to participate in fall, spring, or for the full year program.

The Evergreen Children’s Chorale was formed in January, 1991, upon the successful completion of an SCFD (Scientific and Cultural Facilities District) grant written by Jenise Harper. Jenise and others from the community recognized a need in the mountain area for a high-quality music choir and performance ensemble specifically designed for children.
In June of 1991, ECC made their debut with a concert titled, Kids Take Center Stage. From that point on ECC has performed many other concerts and musical classics such as Annie, The Little Mermaid, Willy Wonka, Seussical , Beauty and the Beast, and The Music Man.
