The East Central Minnesota Chorale (ECMC) is a civic choir representing the five county area of East Central Minnesota. The ensemble was founded and led by David Clarke, former director of choirs at Cambridge High School, in 1981. The Chorale has been privileged to have many accomplished directors over the years, Dr. Dennis Port (Bethel University Choir, retired), Dr. Mark Potvin (Luther College), Joseph Osowski (St. Michael-Albertville HS), and most recently, Charles Moe (Princeton HS). In 2010 the Chorale expanded to include Unum Vox, a high school honors choir from the five county area high schools. UV was founded and led by Dr. Mark Potvin and has had only two directors since its inception, Mark and Tonya Barnes. ECMC has performed in a variety of locations across East Central Minnesota, the Twin Cities, and other locations across the state. The Chorale has been selected twice to perform at the Minnesota State Convention of the American Choral Directors Association. A conscious effort is made to include music from a variety of eras, cultures, and genres.
The annual Scholarship Concert raises money to present scholarships to graduating high school seniors who plan to continue singing at the college level.
