Who We Are

Celebrating 100+ Years

By 1931, ECB had raised enough money to purchase its own piano, paying the then princely sum of $1,800 to Sherman Clay for a Steinway grand. Many card parties and extra performances were held to pay off the balance. And by 1946 the club was meeting at its current location at the Hillside Club on Cedar Street.

Times have changed. Members no longer attend in white gloves or arrive by streetcar or horse-drawn carriage, but our commitment to music remains the same.


Join ECB Today!

Our members come from diverse backgrounds: some are musicians, while others are not. What we share is our love music and our wish to support it in our community. The monthly meetings give us the opportunity to hear great performances by our members, to make new friends and to reconnect with old ones. ECB has three categories of membership:

  • Performing

    – participate in and contribute to all activities, including performing
  • General

    – participate in and contribute to all activities, other than performing
