The Emerald City Women’s Chorus is a non-audition chorus in north Seattle for women of all ages who love to sing for the joy of it. Our chorus is a supportive community of singers who sing a mix of 3 and 4 part music and a variety of genres, including contemporary, classical, folk and rock ‘n roll. Besides having fun, we continually strive for an excellent sound.

Our chorus is directed by Stacia Cumberland and accompanied by Tom Hecker. We are affiliated with Music Center of the Northwest who manages our finances.

We have three sessions during the year:
- Ten-week fall session beginning in late September,
- Ten-week winter session beginning in mid-January, and
- Seven-week spring session beginning in mid-April.

Each session culminates with a concert open to the community. Our annual fund-raising concert is in March.

Rehearsals are held at the Wedgwood Community Church (8201 30th Avenue NE - lower level) in north Seattle on Monday nights, 7:30-9:30 p.m.

We invite women of all ages and voice parts to join our chorus. We accept new members no later than the third (3rd) rehearsal of the quarter. Prospective members are welcome to attend a rehearsal, at no cost, to try us out. Prospective members must RSVP to to let us know which rehearsal they would like to attend. We will respond by email to confirm or suggest another time that would be better for the chorus.
