ECCO – Eugene Concert Choir Outreach

Led by our Music Education Director, Jill Switzer, this program involves up to five 30-45 minute lively and interactive classroom presentations designed to introduce youth, grades 1 – 5 (target 3 – 5), basic musical concepts. Through learning songs from one of our main season Hult Center concerts, students explore music fundamentals such as melody, form, vocal sound and rhythm. Presentations are appropriate for all classrooms and should not be limited to music class.

ECCO student participants receive a free pass for themselves and one accompanying adult to attend our spring kids concert and perform the song they learned with the 110-voice Eugene Concert Choir, Diane Retallack, director, and special guest artists at the Hult Center.

Participating classes receive a CD with vocal warm-ups, songs prerecorded by the Eugene Concert Choir, a copy of the lyrics, and any related materials for teacher use in the classroom.

In 2018 we visited over 10 schools with more than 35 presentations to over 1,000 students. Many of those students joined us to sing American Style for Kids at the Hult Center. We are eager to reach your students this year!


If your school is interested in participating in the ECCO program, please contact our Music Education Director,
