The ECC offers amateur singers the opportunity to work with professional musicians to learn and perform a wide variety of music, ranging from classical masterpieces to contemporary compositions and popular music. The ECC welcomes new singers in all sections for the upcoming season. Interested singers are invited to attend an open rehearsal on Tuesday, Sep 11, 2018 from 7:30-10:00 pm at Humber Valley United Church, 76 Anglesey Blvd., Etobicoke.
