Answer: Sing in a chorus!

The 2015-2016 Season for the Arundel Vocal Arts Society is filled with fun, a tribute to the great composer Mozart, Christmas memories of childhood, and a Salute to Maritime Music!

AVAS's Christmas Concert will feature Mozart's glorious Mass in C major (the "Coronation Mass") and choral works of the season—Do You Hear What I Hear?, Little Drummer Boy, Frosty the Snowman and others—reminding us all that, no matter what our age, we are all children at heart at Christmas.

We are honored to present two performances of this program:

For the Spring Concert, 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 (a work for baritone soloist, chorus and piano), plus selections from South Pacific, Gilbert & Sullivan comedies, and other works, sure to have us all longing to get out and enjoy our very own Chesapeake Bay. April 23rd is the date; come and ride the waves of song with us!

Rehearsals for the 2015-2016 Season of AVAS begin on Wednesday, September 9th at the Severna Park Community Center from 7:15 to 9:45 pm. 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!

Who We Are

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.

All programs of the Arundel Vocal Arts Society are made possible in part by support from the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County, the City of Annapolis, and the Maryland State Arts Council.
