ECO's 2019 - 2020 Season Postponed

ECO Musical Moments are live-streamed and pre-recorded videos that feature our fabulous musicians, board members, friends of ECO, and of course our Music Director Bill Hill. 
Please join us on our Facebook page at 7:00 pm every Tuesday. After the videos premiere on Facebook, you’ll be able to find them on our YouTube channel and the new ECO Musical Moments section of our website.

ECO'S STRONGER TOGETHER GIVING CAMPAIGN

Thank you to all who made financial contributions to our Stronger Together Campaign! We raised over $18,000 and that combined with a $10,000 grant from the NextFifty Initiative, a private Colorado-based foundation focused on improving the lives of older adults, enabled ECO to end the fiscal year with a modest profit!

A NOTE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF ECO's BOARD OF DIRECTORS:

Greetings again, friends, fellow music lovers, and musicians,

We have made the decision to postpone the remainder of the 2019 – 2020 Season. This means that the following events are postponed: 

– Series Finale Chamber Recital (April 26th)
– Masterworks Concert Series Season Finale (May 16th and May 17th)
– Sixth Annual Jazz Gala

This is a painful moment for all of us, but the Board of Directors and the ECO musicians agree that this is the best choice in consideration of the health and safety of the community. 

I’m sure many of you are thinking the same thing I am – “What about Peggy Lyon performing the Bach Keyboard Concerto? How about Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony – I was really looking forward to that! And what about the Young Artists Solo Competition Winner? Katie Mahan performing Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue?!”

Our Music Director, William “Bill” Hill, feels strongly (as do I and the rest of the board) that we should perform these works at the next available opportunity. So fret not, you will hear these wonderful works and performers soon!

For now, at least, we must patiently wait until then. 

With that being said – we are not going to sit idly until the next season. We are incredibly fortunate to have an unbelievable wealth of talent in the ECO community, and one of our core values is to provide an outlet for that talent. 

So… what’s the path forward? 

There are two initiatives we’ll be embarking on for the remainder of the 2019 – 2020 Season and beyond:

1) ECO Musical Moments: The board and musicians of ECO will be creating live-streamed and recorded performances, discussions, lectures, and more! Each video will be premiered on Facebook at 7:00pm on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and then subsequently uploaded to YouTube and added to the new “ECO Musical Moments” section of our website. You’ll be able to join in the conversation and enjoy from the comfort of your own home. The board and musicians are very excited about this and I hope you’ll join us. 

2) Virtual Gala: We will be taking our “Gala” online this year as well. We’re still working out the details, but I can promise you it will be a fantastic event and a great opportunity to virtually “get together” with the ECO community. 

The power of the ECO community lies in supporting each other through music. This is a difficult time for all of us, which is all the more reason to find new ways to experience the power and wonder of music together. Please join us online and be a part of the conversation!

We have several options for those who purchased season tickets or advance tickets to the affected concerts. Please scroll down to learn more

Stay well – I look forward to seeing you online!

Yours devotedly, 

James D Spear
President | Board of Directors

    The recent developments of the coronavirus and COVID-19 have forced us to postpone our live concerts for the rest of the 2019 – 2020 Season (through June). This will significantly impact the financial health of the organization and we really need your support now more than ever!

About Evergreen Chamber Orchestra

Evergreen Chamber Orchestra has been performing classical music in Evergreen and Denver since 1981. We’re an all-volunteer group of musicians, music lovers, volunteers, and community advocates. 

We perform the masterworks of the past, present, and future, covering composers from JS Bach to Prokofiev and beyond. In addition, we often perform new compositions by our Music Director, William Hill. You’ll notice that our 2019 – 2020 Season Finale Concert includes his composition Three Tangos, which is something you definitely don’t want to miss. We perform classical masterworks and contemporary compositions side-by-side at our concerts. This means there’s often something in our programs for all types of music lovers!

Evergreen Chamber Orchestra is an all-volunteer group, dedicated to delivering the best possible performances. Our amazing group of musicians are committed to playing together at a high level. Many concertgoers have commented that we’re sounding the best we ever have! This is because we’ve consistently improved our playing level and increased the diversity of our repertoire since William Hill joined us as our Music Director six years ago.

Evergreen Chamber Orchestra invites you to join us at our next Masterworks Concert Series or Chamber Recital Series event. We guarantee you’ll have an awesome experience!
