Christmas Concert! December 7, 2014

Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery.
But today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present.

  AVAS Holiday Present

Join us on December 7, 2014, for an “AVAS Holiday Present.” The music begins at 3 PM at the Eastport United Methodist Church across from the Eastport Shopping Center.

The first part of the concert features the thrilling tones of Dvorak's Mass in D major. From the serene Kyrie to the rousing Gloria, the chorus and organ accompaniment will awaken your holiday spirit. This classical piece includes guest solos by rising stars from Peabody Institute in addition to the AVAS regulars.

The second half of the program includes the lilting Highland Carol, an adaptation of a poem by John Greenleaf Whittier, and other songs of the season. No AVAS holiday concert would be complete without a chance for the audience to join in, so come prepared to join us for caroling!

Happy Holidays!


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 and it is the intent of the chorus membership to reflect the cultural diversity of the communities it serves.
