Honoring Our Musicians of 2020-21

Just like the rest of the world, our operations were suddenly suspended over a year ago in 2020, due to the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. This occurred just two days before our Spring Concert scheduled for March 13 in Muncie’s Northside Middle School Auditorium.

No one could have known that our orchestra would still be on hold now in April 2021 as the Ball State University spring semester approaches its conclusion. It is the worst Grand Pause ever marked in our music! Thank you to all of our ECICO student & non-student musicians, our patrons, advisors, and audiences for standing by.

We look forward to ending the ‘big silence’ with our traditional Fall Concert in November of 2021; details to follow at the start of the 2021 BSU Fall Semester.

East Central Indiana Chamber Orchestra

The East Central Indiana Chamber Orchestra (ECICO) is a unique and diverse group of musicians, made up of different ages and backgrounds, who love to play light classical music programs, and to share them with local audiences, through its Spring and Fall concerts – Free, Public events held in various easy-access venues in the region.

ECICO makes the classics available to all, and whether they be new to classical music, or are experienced listeners, all are welcome. Each concert is such a great opportunity to introduce all family members to the time-honored music of the great composers.
