The Arundel Vocal Arts Society (AVAS) is a community-based, nonprofit choral group dedicated to the performance of varied, mixed-voice music for the benefit, education, and enjoyment of its members and the surrounding communities.
AVAS has been providing outstanding performances of diverse choral music since 1983. We pride ourselves in the diversity of our programming, including classical masterworks, operetta, pops, folk music, lighter favorites and Broadway.
The chorus presents an annual series of two concerts and supports the creative environment of our community by collaborating with other local musical groups. AVAS membership is open to adults 18 and older. It is the intent of the chorus membership to reflect the cultural diversity of the communities it serves.
2013-2014 Concert Series
The Arundel Vocal Arts Society is in its 31st year of sharing beautiful choral music! Our first concert was Sunday, December 8th at 3pm, at Eastport United Methodist Church. Christmas Around the World will feature carols from various lands, languages and genres. Combining chorus with harp, oboe, and percussion, it was a 'heavenly' afternoon.
On January the 12th at 3pm, we collaborated once again with the Londontowne Symphony Orchestra (Anna Binneweg, conductor) for a repeat performance of Morton Lauridsen's lush Lux Aeterna and a medley from the classic musical Showboat.
Our 2014 Spring Concert takes place on April the 26th, Saturday evening at 7:00 pm. This time we return to the lovely intimate sanctuary of St. Margaret's Episcopal Church (Annapolis), venue for several of our Spring concerts. Rehearsals for this program will begin on January 22nd, 7:30 pm, at the Severna Park Community Center.
Tickets for our performances are $20; each paying adult entitles one school-age child free admission. Tickets can be obtained at the door or from a member of AVAS. We hope to see you there!
