The Arundel Vocal Arts Society (AVAS) is a community based, non-profit 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, from classical masterworks, operetta, pops, folk music, lighter favorites and Broadway.
The chorus presents an annual series of at least 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 community it serves.
2012-2013 Concert Series
The Arundel Vocal Arts Society is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year!!! You know what that means: Music and festivities to laud the sounds heard in Anne Arundel County for the past three decades and the people who have made it possible. We will kick off the fireworks in collaboration with the Londontown Symphony Orchestra (LSO) (Anna Binneweg, conductor) for Morton Lauridsen's lush Lux Aeterna. Randol Bass's A Feast of Carols will highlight the second half of the program, along with some carols for chorus and percussion. The LSO will also favour us with an instrumental showcase on the program.
The date is Sunday, December 2nd, 3pm, at Eastport United Methodist Church. A celebratory reception in the Fellowship Hall will follow.
Our Spring Concert, "Thirty and Thriving", will be a smorgasbord of offerings from the concert programs of the last thirty years. We will celebrate our roots, recognizing the Charter Members, our past directors and those who have helped and continue to help AVAS serve the community with vocal sounds of music.
The location is again Eastport United Methodist Church, site of our last two December concerts. Hope to see you there on Sunday, April 28th, at 3pm. A sumptuous palette of goodies to satisfy your appetite will be served following the performance.
Tickets for both concerts 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.
