Each season the choir gives about 60–70 concerts in Estonia and abroad.

EPCC recordings have won twice Grammy Award for Best Choral Performance: in 2007 for the album “Arvo Pärt. Da Pacem” with the conductor Paul Hillier (Harmonia Mundi) and “Arvo Pärt. Adam’s Lament” with the conductor Tõnu Kaljuste (ECM). www.epcc.ee
