The second concert of the Arundel Vocal Arts Society’s season, our Spring program, is entitled "A Little Water Music,” a salute to water in its many forms and functions! We embrace our region’s love of water, maritime activities and, most of all, the wonderful songs about it. This program will feature Songs of the Fleet by Charles Villiers Stanford, a lush work for baritone soloist, chorus, and piano. This extended work, along with Song of the Tall Ship, is sure to have us laud the beauty and majesty of our Chesapeake Bay. Sea, river, stream, rain, water to wash, and to quench our thirst all are part of the musical beverages served. April 23rd is the date, at 7:00 p.m; Eastport United Methodist Church is the place. Come and ride the waves of song with us! Admission is $20/adult. One child is admitted free with each paying audience member.

Rehearsals for this concert began January 13th, 2016, but there is still time to be a part of it, as we are accepting chorus members until Wednesday, February 3rd. We rehearse at the Severna Park Community Center from 7:15 to 9:45 pm each Wednesday and add some very fruitful Saturday sessions as well. Adults of all ages are invited to join our chorus, where every voice matters. For singers, Membership Dues are $100 for the year; members purchase their own music. Bring your voice, your love of singing and your sense of humor. We have a good time!

We hope you will join us--as a member, a donor, or an audience member. We value the contribution of every single fan of choral singing!

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.
