Donate to the Evergreen Chamber Orchestra today! ECO is dedicated to offering high-quality, inspiring live orchestral performances in Evergreen, Denver, and Arvada, in addition to chamber music recitals held in Conifer, holiday concerts, unique experiences, educational outreach, and our online series.
The many ways in which ECO inspires our musicians and communities reflects the rapid growth of our organization since William (Bill) Hill became ECO's Music Director in 2014. Bill's multitude of musical talents, and his enthusiasm for the orchestra and the fabulous repertoire we perform, has energized us all and resulted in a major expansion in ECO's programming. Our Board is committed to the continued growth of this fabulous orchestra, and to providing our communities with many opportunities to experience live, high-quality performances of the greatest music of the last five centuries in an atmosphere of informal elegance!
"The Canyon Courier has sponsored the Evergreen Chamber Orchestra proudly for many years and this is what we have found. Investment in and association with an organization that strives to bring vision and artistic wealth into the community is always the right thing. The Evergreen Chamber Orchestra does just that. Their commitment to exceptional musical performance in intimate settings brings live, classical music right into the hearts of the audience, where it belongs. We believe in supporting the efforts of this long-standing organization because we believe wholeheartedly in the value of what they do. As publisher of the Canyon Courier I count it a privilege to work with the Evergreen Chamber Orchestra and look forward to many bright years ahead."

"ECO has been one of the best things in our lives. We helped start the Orchestra 38 years ago with seven or eight local musicians and have seen it grow to what it is today. With Bill Hill as our Music Director, ECO has improved tremendously. It's a pleasure 'to make music with our friends' and share it with our audiences."

"Having a great musical experience is something that does not happen often in one's lifetime. So, I consider myself fortunate to have been sitting in the third row of one of our local churches on that Sunday afternoon a few years ago to hear ECO play Beethoven's 7th Symphony. I was surrounded and immersed in those wonderful sounds, an experience I will never forget."

"Last summer we found ourselves at Cactus Jack's in Evergreen scrambling to find seats outside in that western bar. We were there to hear ECO perform classical music. After rushing to get our meal and drinks and settle in and I was not paying too much attention to my surroundings. As the wonderful music began to float through the air, I let my eyes wander to the adjacent rushing river. There on the other side, lined up along the fence were folks of all ages amazed at the beautiful music which interrupted their walk. Amazing!"
