Empire City Men’s Chorus is a forward-thinking, urban auditioned men’s chorus based in New York City. For over 27 years, ECMC’s high quality choral concert programming has brought countless audiences to their feet, made significant contributions to the tradition of men’s choral repertoire, and given back to its greater community through volunteer service, profit-sharing, and goodwill performances. Today, ECMC is much more than an avocational men’s chorus. It is a tight-knit community that values fraternity, musical excellence, and social justice. For many members and listeners, it is an extended family in music that has changed their lives for the better. Its membership reflects a diverse cross-section of New Yorkers, identifying not only with multiple racial and ethnic heritages, but also representing gay, bi-sexual, straight, and transgender identities.
